The Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplification is one of the most promising techniques to deliver 20PW laser system. The already available KD*P in large size is a good candidate as nonlinear crystal. In this article we report the experimental analysis of the spectral small signal gain for KD*P at 70% deuteration level for different phase matching and non-collinear angle. The data is also compared with a theoretical model.
