Paper Abstract

We report laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) measurements of periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) and magnesium-oxide-doped PPLN (MgO:PPLN) in the femtosecond pulse duration regime at 1030 nm with 100 kHz and 75 MHz repetition rate. PPLN and MgO:PPLN crystals with broadband Nb2O5/SiO2 AR coatings for 1.4 - 1.8 um spectral range were used. S-on-1 test for LIDT measurements were performed. S was equal to 106 and 4.56*1010 pulses for 100 kHz CPA laser system and 75 MHz oscillator, respectively. Evaluated LIDT was 20 mJ/cm2 for 290 fs pulses at 100 kHz repetition rate and 0.63 mJ/cm2 for 105 fs pulses at 76 MHz repetition rate.
