Abstract
The faulty microstructure of KDP samples having different bulk laser damage threshold (4 multiplied by 1010 W/cm2 - 5.4 multiplied by 1011 W/cm2 was studied using the methods of the three-crystal x-ray diffraction and two-crystal topography on reflection. A correlation between the dispersion of the structure-sensitive parameters characterizing the microfaultness and the value of bulk laser threshold of samples cut off large KDP crystals was established.
