Abstract:

Emphasis of our program during the past three years has been on improving the size and quality of Beta-barium borate BBO crystal developing the growth recipe for lithium triborate crystal LBO automation of the growth process of BBO and LBO characterization of LBO developing optical parametric oscillators using BBO, LBO, and new nonlinear crystals such as KTiOPO4 KTP, KTA arsenate, CCsTA, and RRbTA and finally helping to establish commercial sources of BBO and LBO crystals and optical parametric oscillator making use of these new crystals. Significant progress has been made in all these areas. The results are summarized below and in the Appendices attached
