KTP 結晶の応用:NdドープレーザーのSHG(二倍波発生)と SFG(和周波発生)

KTP is the most commonly used material for frequency doubling of Nd:YAG and other Nd-doped lasers, particularly when the power density is at a low or medium level. To date, extra- and intra-cavity frequency doubled Nd:lasers using KTP have become a preferred pumping source for visible dye lasers and tunable Ti:Sapphire lasers as well as their amplifiers. They are also useful green sources for many research and industry applications.

 

* More than 80% conversion efficiency and 700mJ green laser were obtained with a 900mJ
   injection-seeded Q-switch Nd:YAG lasers by using extra-cavity KTP.
* 8W green laser was generated from a 15W LD pumped Nd:YVO4 with intra-cavity KTP.
* 200mW green outputs are generated from 1 W LD pumped Nd:YVO4 lasers by        using CASTECH ’s 2x2x5mm KTP and 3x3x1mm Nd:YVO4.
* 2-5mw green outputs are generated from 180mw LD pumped Nd:YVO4 and KTP glued    crystals.For more details, please refer to Glued Crystals.

KTP is also being used for intracavity mixing of 0.81μm diode and 1.064μm Nd:YAG laser to generate blue light and intracavity SHG of Nd:YAG or Nd:YAP lasers at 1.3μm to produce red light.

 

KTP 結晶の応用:OPG、 OPA、  OPOについて 

As an efficient OPO crystal pumped by a Nd:laser and its second harmonics, KTP plays an important role for parametric sources for tunable outputs from visible (600nm) to mid-IR (4500nm), as shown in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4.

Generally, KTP’s OPOs provide stable and continuous pulse outputs (signal and idler) in fs, with 108 Hz repetition rate and a mW average power level. A KTP’s OPO that are pumped by a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser has generated as high as above 66% efficiency for degenerately converting to 2120nm.

The novel developed application is the non-critical phase-matched(NCPM) KTP OPO/OPA pumped by the X-cut KTP crystal. As shown in Fig.5, for pumping wavelength range from 0.7μm to 1 μm, the output can cover from 1.04μm to 1.45μm(signal) and from 2.15μm to 3.2μm(idler). More than 45% conversion efficiency was obtained with narrow output bandwidth and good beam quality.

KTP 結晶の応用: E-Oデバイスについて

In addition to unique NLO features, KTP also has promising E-O and dielectric properties that are comparable to LiNbO3These advantaged properties make KTP extremely useful to various E-O devices. Table 1 is a comparison of KTP with other E-O modulator materials commonly used:

From Table 1, clearly, KTP is expected to replace LiNbO3 crystal in the considerable volume application of E-O modulators, when other merits of KTP are combined into account, such as high damage threshold, wide optical bandwidth (>15GHZ), thermal and mechanical stability, and low loss, etc.

KTP 結晶の応用:Optical Waveguides 

Based on the ion-exchange process on KTP substrate, low loss optical waveguides developed for KTP have created novel applications in integrated optics. Table 2 gives a comparison of KTP with other optical waveguide materials. Recently, a type II SHG conversion efficiency of 20%/W/cm2 was achieved by the balanced phase matching, in which the phase mismatch from one section was balanced against a phase mismatch in the opposite sign from the second. Furthermore, segmented KTP waveguides have been applied to the type I quasi-phase-matchable SHG of a tunable Ti:Sapphire laser in the range of 760-960mm, and directly doubled diode lasers for the 400-430nm outputs.
