Paper Abstract

Procedures for measuring the linear optical properties of small, transparent crystals are described. Using a spindle stage refractometer, the refractive indices for light from 0.38 to 1.10 μm can be determined. The methods are employed to study new nonlinear crystals to evaluate their potential as second and third harmonic generators of light at 1.064 μm. The measurements can be made on single crystal fragments as small as 50 μm, thus permitting preliminary evaluations to be made prior to extensive crystal growth efforts.
