Paper Abstract

We perform thne conditioning of various KDP crystals with a XeF excimer laser working at 351 nm. We determine the maximum available excimer laser fluence for conditioning without damage initiation within the crystal. We demonstrate enhancement of the damage resistance with the increase of the cumulative excimer laser fluence. Using the conditioning parameters we show that the damage resistance is also dependent on the crystalline orientation of the KDP samples.
