Abstract

The UV photorefraction of Zr-doped lithium niobate (LN:Zr) was investigated. The experimental results show that LN:Zr crystals have high resistance against photorefraction in the UV region as well as in the visible range and can withstand a UV light intensity of above 105Wcm2. According to the fitting results of erasing curves with UV and green light, a two-center O2-defect model was suggested. Our results indicate that LN:Zr is an excellent candidate for optical damage resistance from the UV to the visible spectrum.
