We investigate the laser-induced damage resistance at 355 nm in deuterated potassium dihydrogen phosphate (DKDP) crystals grown with varying growth parameters, including speed of growth and temperature. The aim is to explore a new expedited method to study the growth parameters affecting the laser-induced damage resistance in DKDP material to obtain crystals with enhanced performance.
