KTP

Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTP) is perfect nonlinear optical material suitable for use in a lot of different laser systems. KTP is liked because of its‘ stable physical properties and high nonlinear coefficient. That is why one of KTP usuall applications is to generate second harmonic for Nd:YAG ( 532 nm ) absorbing 1064 nm radiation. KTP also has physical properties which allows it to be used in electro-optic modulation and optical parametric generation.
