Broadband frequency doubling in unpoled SBN crystals in the thermal focusing regime Conference Paper uri icon


  • We study experimentally broadband noncollinear second-harmonic generation in unpoled Strontium Barium Niobate crystals. We show the e®ects of thermal self-focusing on the parametric conversion, including spatial localization of the second-harmonic, increased e±ciency, and spectral broadening. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
