Paper Abstract

A nonlinear optical crystal YCa4O(BO3)3 (YCOB) is phase-matchable for third harmonic generation (THG) of a Nd:YAG laser by type-I mixing between 1.064 and 0.532 micrometer. By partial substitution of Gd for Y in YCOB, a solid solution GdxY1-xCa4O(BO3)3 gradually changes the phase-matching angles of THG to ((theta) , (phi) ) equals (90 degrees, 90 degrees). In this paper, we present the properties of noncritically phase-matched THG in GdxY1- xCa4O(BO3)3 (x equals 0.24).
