Paper Abstract

By third-order nonlinear coupling and tightly focusing the beams in a single crystal of BBO, high intensity broad-bandwidth femtosecond pulses are used to generate 50μJ of light at 270nm (up to 1% THG efficiency). It is proved that the major contribution to the THG observed is the third-order process, not the cascaded second-order process. And the primary reasons why THG efficiency is about 1% is that 1ωlight is frequency-chirp beams and BBO crystal isn't tuned to optimized angle. At last, the methods to improve the third harmonic conversion efficiency have been put forward.
