Growth of High Quality Al-Doped CsLiB6O10 Crystals Using Cs2O-Li2O-MoO3 Fluxes
AbstractAbstract: High quality and large size Al-doped CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) single crystals have been successfully grown by top-seeded solution growth (TSSG) technique using Cs2O–Li2O–MoO3 fluxes. The advantages of this newly developed flux system were investigated by viscosity measurements and growth experiments. Al-doped CLBO presents a very high transmittance in the visible region and the weak absorption values at 1064 nm along a and c axes are only 140 and 50 ppm/cm, respectively. The measured LIDT of Al-doped CLBO at λ = 1064 nm and τ = 5.0 ns is 5.10 GW/cm2. Moreover, Al-doped CLBO exhibits an apparent enhancement of the hygroscopic nature in contrast with the undoped crystal as determined by the humidity experiments. Finally, a high fourth harmonic generation (FHG) conversion efficiency of 63% utilizing Al-doped CLBO has been achieved by a picosecond mode-locked Nd:YAG laser, the results also reveal that Al doping has no obvious impact on the FHG conversion efficiency.
