Paper Abstract

The investigation and utilization of noncritical phase matchings in optical devices is a new focus for bulk and integrated nonlinear optics research. The use of vectorial group and multiple noncritical phase matchings of the sum- and difference-frequency generation in nonlinear crystals permits both to extend essentially the tuning range of the wide-band conversion to cover practically the entire transparency region of a crystal and attain the bandwidth of conversion of the order of 103 cm-1 in the mid- IR and the near-IR spectral region. We discuss where possible applications of noncritical phase matchings.
