We have experimentally determined the spectrally noncritical phasematching behavior of Type I frequency doubling in KDP and its dependence on deuteration level in partially deuterated KDP. The first order wavelength sensitivity parameter (alpha) (Delta) k/(alpha) (lambda) for Type I doubling of 1.053 micrometers light vanishes for a KD*P crystal with a deuteration level between 10 and 14%. Very high bandwidth frequency doubling of Nd:glass lasers is possible with such a crystal.
