Paper Abstract

The defects responsible for damage in KDP and DKDP crystals are investigated by analyzing the density of damage sites and their individual morphology under different irradiation wavelengths and fluences. The experimental results indicate the presence of two defect species initiating damage over different wavelength ranges. Disparities in the morphology of damage sites initiated are also observed over each wavelength range.
