KDDP Pockels cells
KDDP crystal is a very efficient material for Pockels cells used in the visible and near- infrared spectral range. This material is available in extremely large sizes with high optical quality. Its large electrooptic coefficients give the lowest operating voltages of all the [x]DP crystal family. Relatively large dielectric constants also give a high uniformity of electric field distribution across the crystal aperture. KDDP crystals are transparent in the range of 350nm -1500 nm and can operate at very high optical power densities. These characteristics make KDDP a basic material for Pockels cells used with very high power laser systems.
