Laser-Induced Damage in Optical Materials: 2004
The local structure of KH 2 PO 4 crystals (so-called KDP) at laser-induced damage sites created by irradiation with ∼ 3-ns, 355-nm laser pulses is studied by a combination of Raman scattering and photoluminescence spectroscopies. We compare spectra from pristine material, surface and bulk laser-induced damage sites, as well as from KPO 3 references. Results show that irradiation with fluences above the laser-induced breakdown threshold leads to stoichiometric changes at surface damage sites butdoi:10.1117/12.584943 fatcat:2hfncqf3tfa3xkue6n25prc7dq
