Abstract
THE INTER-RELATIONSHIP OF HYDROXL (OH-) CONTENT IN KTP WITH THE IONIC CONDUCTIVITY, OPTICAL ABSORPTION AT ( 4OO-5OONM ) AND THE ONSET OF "GREY TRACK" FORMATION WILL BE DETERMINED. MEASUREMENTS WILL BE MADE ON CRYSTALS GROWN BY THE HYDROTHERMAL, AND HIGH TEMPERATURE SOLUTION METHODS. THE EFFECTS OF ELECTRIC FIELDS AND THERMAL ANNEALING TREATMENTS ON OHCONTENT WILL BE EVALUATED. CORRELATIONS BETWEEN THESE PARAMETERS COULD RESULT IN IMPROVED PROCESSING PROCEDURES WHICH WILL RESULT IN KTP OF SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED PROPERTIES.
