Abstract

Several transition metal phosphates of the general formula $KM_{0.5}M'_{0.5}OPO_4$, where $M = Nb^v$ or $Ta^v$ and $M' = Ti^{III}, V^{III}, Cr^{III}, Fe^{III}$, possessing the $KTiOPO_4$ (KTP) structure have been synthesized. Unlike KTP, none of these phosphates exhibit second harmonic generation (SHG) of the 1064-nm radiation. Soft-chemical oxidation of the $Ti^{III}$ and $V^{III}$ phosphates using chlorine in $CHCI3$, however, restores the SHG property to the oxidized materials, $K_{0.5}M_{0.5}M'_{0.5}OP0_4 (M = Nb^v, Ta^v; M' = Ti^{Iv}, V^{IV})$. $K_{1-x} Ti_{1-x}V_x OP0_4 (x \leq 0.25)$ prepared similarly from $KTi_{1-x}V_x OPO_4$ also exhibit SHG. The results reveal that exclusive presence of d° cations at the $Ti^{iv}$ site preserves the SHG response of KTP derivatives.
