Paper Abstract

A standard third harmonic frequency converter consists of a single doubler crystal and a subsequent mixer crystal. This converter configuration has optimum performance for monochromatic temporally flat pulses. Significant degradation of conversion efficiency occurs when the input pulses have large intensity variations or applied bandwidth. Calculations have shown that dynamic range can be increased and bandwidth sensitivity reduced by adding a second doubler crystal and second mixer crystal, respectively.
