    Pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique is applied in fabrication of thin films of KTiOPO4 (KTP) material, which possesses electro-optic and nonlinear optical properties. Thin film fabrication of optically functional KTP on fused silica and different sapphire substrates by changing an ambient oxygen pressure and a substrate temperature during PLD is investigated. Highly oriented KTP thin films could be grown on sapphire (112̄0)in an oxygen atmosphere by PLD using a composite target whose stoichiometry is nearly same as KTP. Although the film contained polycrystalline crystallites, predominant crystallites seemed to be epitaxially grown.
