Modern nonlinear-optical crystals can have absorption below 0.1 m–1 in the operating wavelength range. However, in the case of laser frequency conversion even low absorption of pump and generated radiation along with multiphoton absorption can lead to a considerable nonuniform heating of crystals resulting in the decrease of the conversion efficiency due to the violation of phase-matching conditions.
