Paper Abstract

The crystal growth and optical quality of magnesium oxide doped lithium niobate are characterized. Measured physical, optical, and nonlinear optical properties are discussed and compared with undoped lithium niobate. Frequency doubling results of 1.06 gm radiation are presented, where 53 percent conversion efficiency is obtained in lithium niobate doped with 5 mole percent magnesium oxide.
