Second harmonic generation and accurate index of refraction measurements in flux-grown KTiOPO(4).


Accurate index of refraction measurements have been performed in flux-grown KTiOPO(4). These measurements give good agreement between experiment and theory for angle phase matching in Type II second harmonic generation at 1.064 microm. These refractive-index data have allowed us to calculate the propagation angles for second harmonic generation at wavelengths of interest other than 1.064 microm such as 1.34 microm. Type II second harmonic energy conversion efficiency of 1.064 micro m of up to 59% in this material has also been demonstrated with higher efficiencies possible. Limits to conversion efficiency are discussed.
