Paper Abstract

We have developed public domain numerical models of nonlinear three-wave mixing in birefringent crystals that include diffraction and dispersion. They are suitable for detailed and realistic modeling of mixing for both a single crystal pass and for multiple passes appropriate for a crystal in a resonant cavity. We routinely compare our models with laboratory devices, usually achieving excellent agreement.
