Paper Abstract

The problem of creating highly effective technology to fabricate crystal elements for high- energy laser systems is observed. The principal technology is developed which permits us to grow crystal blanks with given shapes, dimensions, and orientations. The growth rates exceed the conventional ones by more than 10 times. The (101) orientation KDP crystal with dimensions 380 by 450 by 50 mm has been obtained. The possibility of use 'skewed' elements is considered.
