Paper Abstract

The 90° phase-matched direct type-1 and type-2 third-harmonic generation (THG) at 0.3263 and 0.3837 μm were observed along x of the monoclinic BiB3O6 at room temperature by using the idler of the β-BaB2O4 parametric oscillator. These interactions preclude the non-phase-matched, cascaded quadratic processes owing to the crystal symmetry along x. The phase-matching properties for these pure cubic processes are presented together with the results on the direct THG of the Nd:YAG laser at 1.0642 μm in three principal planes.
