Paper Abstract

Second harmonic energy conversion efficiencies in KTP and BBO crystals have been investigated by using pico-second pulse. For extracavity-doubled, conversion efficiencies 43.8% and 32% were obtained, respectively. In intracavity-doubled, efficiencies 53.4% and 70% by using convex-ARR (Anti-resonant Ring) unstable resonator, 60.2% and 80.6% by using unstable confocal resonator were achieved, respectively. It shows that KTP crystal has higher conversion efficiency at lower intensity (under KTP gray-tracking threshold) and lower efficiency at high power laser compared to the BBO crystal. This result principally caused by the KTP gray-tracking phenomena.
