  • Product Detail


KTP Nonlinear crystal Potassium Titanyl Phosphate is the most commonly used material for frequency doubling of Nd-doped lasers, particularly at the low or medium power density. It is widely used for frequency mixing to generate Red/Green/Blue output, and for OPO and OPA to generate visible to mid-infrared tunable output. It is also used for many E-O devices such as Q-switches and E-O modulators.

Main applications:

1) Frequency Doubling (SHG) of Nd-doped Lasers for Green/Red Output;

2) Frequency Mixing (SFM) of Nd Laser and Diode Laser for Blue Output;

3) Parametric Sources (OPG, OPA and OPO) for 600nm - 4500nm Tunable Ouptut;

4) E-O Modulators, Optical Switches, Directional Couplers;

5) Optical Waveguides for Integrated NLO and E-O DevicesOPA and OPO.


1) Large nonlinear optical coefficient;

2) Wide angular bandwidth and small walk-off angle

3) Broad temperature and spectral bandwidth;

4) High Electro-Optics(E-O) coefficient and low dielectric constant;

5) Non-hygroscopic, chemically and mechanically stable

Ti:Sapphire crystal is the most widely used tunable solid-state laser material combining the supreme physical and optical properties with the extremely broad lasing range. Its lasing bandwidth can support pulses < 10fs making it the crystal of choice for femtosecond mode-locked oscillators and amplifiers. The absorption band of Ti:Sapphire centers at ~ 490 nm so it may be conveniently pumped by various laser sources such as argon ion lasers or frequency doubled Nd:YAG, Nd:YLF, Nd:YVO4 lasers at ~530nm. Laser designers are using Ti:sapphire to generate femtosecond pulses to create new industrial tools. A properly delivered femtosecond laser pulse interacts within the target leaving the surrounding area undisturbed. Newly developed femtosecond pulsed lasers micro-machine complex fine structures in glass, metal and other materials. Active waveguides can be written below the surface, integrating optical devices within the body of a substrate. Defects in photomasks can be repaired without disturbing neighbouring patterns. And it is now possible to achieve cellular resolution in vivo for medical diagnosis with femtosecond pulse lasers.
