Applications of lithium niobate in nonlinear optics at high light intensities are seriously hampered by optical damage. Recent investigations have shown that Hf(4+) and Zr(4+) ions have some advantages in suppressing optical damage of LiNbO(3) with respect to Mg(2+). Here we present Sn-doped LiNbO(3) (Sn:LN). Experimental results indicate that Sn:LN has similar optical damage resistance to Mg-doped LiNbO(3), but the doping threshold of Sn is only 2.5 mol.%, where its distribution coefficient is… CONTINUE READING
