Paper Abstract

Second harmonic generation in ferroelectric LC when the waves propagate along the helical axis and in cholesteric LC for oblique wave propagation are studied taking into account the damping of pumping and SH waves, caused by absorption and scattering on the director fluctuations. The structural enhancement of SHG near Bragg reflection band is predicted.
