Crystal characterization and "natural quasi-phase matching" in Yb:YAB

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionpeer-review

Abstract

We analyse phase matching characteristics and nonlinear conversion in the self-frequency doubling material Yb:YAB and demonstrate a simple non-destructive technique for measuring crystal quality. By imaging the nonlinear conversion using a CCD camera we observe phase matching characteristics similar to that obtained in quasiphase- matched crystals and attribute these effects to twin inversion defects induced during crystal growth.
