Abstract
THERE IS A NEED FOR OPTICAL CRYSTALS, HAVING LARGE NONLINEAR COEFFICIENTS FOR OPERATION AS OPTICAL PARAMETRIC OSCILLATERS (OPO) IN THE MID IR REGION (1.5 TO 5.0 MICRONS). SINGLE CRYSTALS OF KTIOASO4 (KTA) HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO HAVE SUPERIOR TRANSMISSION IN THIS OPTICAL REGION, HOWEVER, THE PRESENCE OF A DOMAIN STRUCTURE COMPLICATES THE UTILIZATION OF THIS MATERIAL. IN ADDITION THE NONLINEAR PROPERTIES OF KTA ARE REPORTED TO BE CONSIDERABLY LARGER THAN KTP. IN ORDER TO SELECT THE BEST MATERIAL FOR THIS OPO APPLICATION, THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE KTP FAMILY MUST BE EVALUATED AS SINGLE CRYSTALS. THE SYNTHESIS, CRYSTAL GROWTH AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CSTIOASO4 (CTA) WILL BE INVESTIGATED IN THIS PROGRAM.
