Paper Abstract

A new nonlinear optical crystal, CsLiB6O10 (CLBO), is described, which is a congruently melting crystal and can realize fourth harmonic and fifth harmonic generations of the 1.064 micrometer Nd:YAG laser radiation with type-I phase matching. A large and high quality single crystal with dimensions of 14 by 11 by 11 cm3 was obtained by the top- seeded Kyropoulos method. CLBO showed higher fourth harmonic generation efficiency from the second harmonic of Nd:YAG laser output compared to beta-BaB2O4.
