Abstract

We have grown LaCa4OBO33 (LaCOB), an isostructural member of GdCa4OBO33 (GdCOB) family and characterized its nonlinear optical properties. At 1064  nm, deff of 0.52±0.05 pm/V and an angular sensitivity of 1224±184 cm rad-1 for type I frequency doubling in LaCOB were determined relative to those of KTiOPO4, βBaB2O4, KD2PO4, LiB3O5, YCa4OBO33 (YCOB), and GdCOB. The dαββ and dγββ coefficients of the non-linear optical tensor for LaCOB, GdCOB, and YCOB were determined to be equivalent within the experimental uncertainty and have values of 0.26±0.04pm/V and 1.69±0.17pm/V, respectively. From phase-matching angle measurements at 1064 and 1047  nm, we predict that LaCOB is noncritically phase matched at 1042±1.5 nm.

Normalized 2ω emission for doubling at 1047 and 1064  nm for type  I LaCOB and for doubling at 1064  nm for type  I GdCOB as a function of Δθ from the peak phase-matching direction in the αγ plane. For LaCOB, the peak 2ω emission for doubling 1047- and 1064-nm light occurs at 5.5° and 9.9° from the γ dielectric axis, respectively, indicating that, for LaCOB, NCPM should occur at approximately 1042  nm.
