Abstract

We have successfully resolved the degradation problem of CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) by means of elevated crystal temperature. CLBO crystals were continuously operated at 160 °C in ordinary room humidity. No degradation of performance was observed after more than 1 month. We believe that heating CLBO crystal above 130 °C can relieve stresses introduced by crystal hydration, cutting, polishing, and thermal shock owing to laser power absorption. Thus long-term operation of CLBO crystal is achieved for effective application of laser frequency conversion. Output stability from CLBO is also further enhanced at elevated crystal temperature.

Normalized output energy at 532 and 266  nm from CLBO crystals at 160 °C. Stable performance was observed for more than 1 month with continuous exposure to ordinary room humidity in an unsealed heater. Slight output fluctuations occurred owing to jitter of crystal temperature caused by inherent air turbulence. The average outputs at 532 and 266  nm are 3.2 and 1.8  W, respectively.
