HOME Products Nonlinear Crystals RTP Crystal

RTP Crystal

  Description: RTP is an isomorph to Potassium Titanyl Phosphate (KTiOPO4, KTP), a highly efficient non-linear crystalline material.
  Application: Now widely used for Electro Optical applications whenever low switching voltages are required.
    Used as pulse-picker in femto-second train
    Used as Q-switch at high repetition rate.
  Feature: Excellent crystal for Electro-Optical applications at high repetition rate. 
    High Damage Threshold,low Insertion Loss.
    Does not induce piezo-electric effect
    High Extinction and Contrast Ratio
    Reliable homogeneity
    Stability over a wide temperature range (-60ºC – +70ºC)
