Paper Abstract

Using an OPO (optical parametric oscillator) laser we have measured the damage thresholds of deuterated potassium dihydrogen phosphate (DKDP) from 312 nm to 532 nm by the 1 on 1 method. Distinct steps are observed in the damage threshold at 318 nm and 487 nm. The wavelength dependence to the damage threshold is compared to various models from the literature to demonstrate the relevance of each to damage initiation in DKDP.
