RGB laser displays offer several advantages over currently available display types.? The color gamut is larger than in CRT, LED or Plasma systems, offering more vibrant colors.? The low étendue of lasers simplifies the imaging optics, may even eliminate the need for focusing, and enables small handheld projectors.? While good quality red and blue lasers are available that can be modulated at the high speeds required for creating a grey-scale, this has not been the case for green lasers based on frequency-doubled DPSS lasers.? Frequency doubling of diode lasers can address this shortcoming and various approaches are being pursued.? Each of those approaches requires a nonlinear optical crystal that has good conversion efficiency and can be produced at low cost with good reproducibility.? MgO doped lithium niobate is currently the favored crystal for this need.? The talk will discuss crystal characterization techniques used to optimize the crystal growth process and address the challenges in scaling R&D processes to high volume production from crystal growth, periodic poling through device processing.
