Abstract
We report the measurements of the linear and non linear absorption at 1064, 532 and 355 nm in samples of KDP crystals fabricated with the rapid growth process developed for NIF and LMJ high power lasers. Measurements were performed according to the ISO11551 standard by the "pulse" or "gradient" calorimetric method using a pulsed, diodepumped, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. Time resolved spectroscopy method was used for the investigation of defects formation, responsible for the non linear absorption at 355 nm.
