Paper Abstract

Novel χ(3)-based nonlinear polarization interferometer is proposed. It allows cross polarized wave generation with enhanced efficiency and obtaining different beam shapes of the generated cross-polarized wave. The interferometer consists of two polarizers, two quarter-wave plates and a BaF2 crystal. The experiment with this interferometer confirms the predicted dependences.
