Abstract: Potassium dihydrogen phosphate, KH2PO4 (KDP) crystal is an excellent electro-optical nonlinear optical crystal with large electro-optical nonlinear coefficient, high laser damage threshold, and laser frequency doubling effect, electro-optical effect , Piezoelectric effects and other special features, widely used in inertial confinement fusion engineering (ICF) and electro-optical switching devices. Therefore, its growth mechanism, growth process and performance have been systematically studied. In the process of KDP crystal growth, it is found that the stability of the growth solution is an important factor affecting the quality of crystal growth. Therefore, in recent years, more and more research on the stability of the solution, such as the study of ph, doping, supersaturation, overheating time on the stability of the solution. Among them, the research on the doping is mostly reported, and the research on this aspect is mainly focused on two aspects. On the one hand, it is the study of the stability of the solution under doping, and the other is the effect of doping on the optical quality of the crystal. In fact, the stability of the growth solution and the quality of crystal growth is directly related to the quality, but the existing research to isolate the two researches. Therefore, the experiment will be carried out in the case of double-doped KDP solution stability, KDP crystal growth and crystal optical quality and other experiments, and in-depth analysis of the impact of solution stability and crystal optical quality of the reasons, while the solution stability and The relationship between the optical quality of the crystal is briefly analyzed.
