Applications for SHG and SFG of Nd: lasers
 KTP is the most commonly used material for frequency doubling of Nd:YAG and other Nd-doped lasers, particularly when the power density is at a low or medium level. To date, extra- and intra-cavity frequency doubled Nd:lasers using KTP have become a preferred pumping source for visible dye lasers and tunable Ti:Sapphire lasers as well as their amplifiers. They are also useful green sources for many research and industry applications. 
* More than 80% conversion efficiency and 700mJ green laser were obtained with a 900mJ injection-seeded Q-switch Nd:YAG lasers by using extra-cavity KTP.
* 8W green laser was generated from a 15W LD pumped Nd:YVO4 with intra-cavity KTP.
* 200mW green outputs are generated from 1 W LD pumped Nd:YVO4 lasers by using THATSHIGH's 2x2x5mm KTP and 3x3x1mm Nd:YVO4.
* 2-5mw green outputs are generated from 180mw LD pumped Nd:YVO4 and KTP glued  crystals. For more details, please refer to Glued Crystals.
KTP is also being used for intracavity mixing of 0.81μm diode and 1.064μm Nd:YAG laser to generate blue light and intracavity SHG of Nd:YAG or Nd:YAP lasers at 1.3μm to produce red light.
Applications for OPG, OPA and OPO
As an efficient OPO crystal pumped by a Nd:laser and its second harmonics, KTP plays an important role for parametric sources for tunable outputs from visible (600nm) to mid-IR (4500nm), as shown in Fig. 3 and Fig. 4.
Generally, KTP's OPOs provide stable and continuous pulse outputs (signal and idler) in fs, with 108 Hz repetition rate and a mW average power level. A KTP’s OPO that are pumped by a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser has generated as high as above 66% efficiency for degenerately converting to 2120nm.
The novel developed application is the non-critical phase-matched(NCPM) KTP OPO/OPA pumped by the X-cut KTP crystal. As shown in Fig.5, for pumping wavelength range from 0.7μm to 1 μm, the output can cover from 1.04μm to 1.45μm(signal) and from 2.15μm to 3.2μm(idler). More than 45% conversion efficiency was obtained with narrow output bandwidth and good beam quality.
