KTP crystal is mostly used as nonlinear crystals for frequency doubling of solid-state Nd:YAG crystal or Nd:YVO4 crystal laser, as it has large nonlinear optical coefficients, wide angular bandwidth and small walk-off angle, broad temperature and spectral bandwidth. KTP crystal also has high electro-optic(E-O) coefficient and low dielectric constant, and large figure of merit, these features make it also widely used in electro-optic application.

Advantages of KTP Crystal:

  • Large Nonlinear Optical (NLO) Coefficients
  • Wide Angular Bandwidth and Small Walk-off Angle
  • Broad Temperature and Spectral Bandwidth
  • High Electro-Optic (E-O) Coefficient and Low Dielectric Constant
  • Large Figure of Merit for an Optical Waveguide Modulator
  • Nonhygroscopic, Good Chemical and Mechanical Properties

Definition of Optical Crystal

Optical crystal is a kind of crystalline material used as optical medium. It is always used for making ultraviolet region window and infrared region window, lens and prism. It also can be divided into single crystal and polycrystal by crystal texture. Because single crystal material has high crustal integrity and light transmissivity and well as low input loss, the common optical crystal is focus on single crystal.

Types of Optical Crystal

Optical crystal includes metal halide crystal, especially fluoride crystal and high temperature oxides crystal, such as the magnesium fluoride crystal for ultraviolet transmitting material, the calcium fluoride crystal and barium fluoride crystal for infrared transmitting materials and so on. Some semiconductor materials like GaAa, ZnS and ZnSe are also fine intermediate infrared transmitting materials. They are fine output window materials of CO2 laser for high mechanical strength and non-deliquescent property. But is has large surface reflection, causing limitation in transmittance. Among oxide window materials, the most important are SiO2 crystal and AI2O3 crystals. These materials can not only withstand the drastic change of high and low temperature, but also have strong shock resistance, so they are always applied in space technology field, communication and navigation equipment and sensor.

Application of Optical Crystal

Optical crystal mainly refers to the crystal that used in optical circuit, mainly in the launch, dispose and reception of light. In recent years, another kind of optical crystal that worths noting is fiber crystal and optical waveguide crystal, they are mainly used for the transfer, conversion and branch of light.

Optical polycrystal materials are mainly hot-press optics polycrystal that acquired by hot-press sintering process. They mainly include oxides hot-press polycrystal, fluoride hot-press polycrystal, semiconductor hot-press polycrystal. Hot-press optics polycrystal not only has fine transmission of light but also has fine mechanics and physical properties like high strength, heat resistance, corrosion resistance and shock resistance, it can be used as optical device and window materials for special demand.
