Abstract

We measure the nonlinear optical d coefficients of potassium titanyl phosphate relative to d 11 of quartz and use these to calculate the effective coefficient d eff for type-I phase matching. We compare the calculations with a variety of measurements and determine that the signs of the different d coefficients are all the same.
