Abstract

Blue light-induced infrared absorption is investigated in bulk and periodically poled KTiOPO4, MgO:stoichiometric-LiNbO3, MgO:stoichiometric-LiTaO3, KNbO3. KNbO3 and MgO:stoichiometric-LiNbO3 show the lowest susceptibility to the induced absorption. Periodic poling increases the susceptibility in KTiOPO4 and MgO:stoichiometric-LiTaO3.
