KDP and Isomorphs Crystals and their Applications in Laser Industry
The crystallography study states that the isomorph crystals are two different substances having nearly similar crystal structures. These isomorphs are known for having the same chemical properties but different crystal sizes.
The potassium dihydrogen phosphate kh2po4 or KDP and DKPH are the isomorphs. The KDP is a translucent dielectric material. The DKDP is more popular as compared to KDP owing to the replacement of hydrogen by deuterium which leads to lowering of O-H vibrations. The DKDP crystal making process is done by the water solution method which makes it more costly as compared to KDP.
These crystals are having dielectric potential. The crystals have applications in the laser industry due to their non-linear optical property. They are also, widely used in various laser systems for optoelectrical switching and harmonic generation. The KDP is a second, third, and fourth generator for non-linear optics. The growth of the laser industry is estimated to bolster the demand for the KDP and isomorphs crystals in the coming years.
