Paper Abstract

Efficient second harmonic conversion (70 - 80%) using Type II and Type I crystals is demonstrated with 400-fs, 1.053-micrometers laser pulses at intensities up to several hundreds of GW/cm2. The experimental results generally agree with the predictions of the code MIXER. For the Type II predelay scheme, evidence is obtained of pulse shortening down to approximately 100 fs.
