Paper Abstract

The results of the study of optical absorption, bulk laser damage threshold and structural characteristics of rapidly grown KDP crystals are presented in this paper. Crystals were grown in the direction of preset angle ((Theta) equals 59 degree(s)) of synchronism at a rate of 5 mm/day. The developed technique allows to obtain blanks of nonlinear elements right during crystal growth thus decreasing material and power consumption when making products. The grown crystals have bulk laser damage threshold on the level of approximately 4.5 GW/cm2 and high structural quality.
