Paper Abstract

We have initiated a program at West Virginia University to establish the properties of point defects that are relevant to the optical damage phenomena in KTP, BBO, and LBO crystals. Defects have been characterized using optical absorption, electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), electron-nuclear double resonance (ENDOR), and luminescence techniques. Among the defects which have been observed are impurity ions (iron, platinum, hydrogen, etc.), trapped hole centers, and trapped electron centers.
