KDP & KD*P
Potassium Dihydrogen Phosphate or KDP and Potassium Dideuterium Phosphate KD*P are widely-used NLO materials. They are liked because of their good UV transmission, high damage threshold, and high birefringence degree. They are usually used in Nd:YAG laser systems which are made to work at the room temperature. More over, they can operate as excellent electro-optic crystals. Because of their high electro-optic coefficient they are widely used as electro-optical modulators.
