Paper Abstract

In light of the principle of phase matching (PM) in biaxial crystals, PM types for four-wave interaction processes are discussed. The relationships among the refractive indices of the four interacting waves are analyzed to classify PM topologies. A computer program is developed to characterize and obtain PM directions and their loci. As examples, PM loci for direct third-harmonic generation in four biaxial crystals are presented.
