Relative sideband intensity measured between 450 and 850 nm. The transmission spectrum of the Nd:glass laser rod is shown below, which suggests that the sideband radiation is produced within the rod itself.

Theoretical plot of the full range of tunable picosecond up-converted blue light vs ADP crystal orientation, which could be obtained by our technique, for the type OOE phase matching of the 1.06-μm laser radiation with the intense red portion of the sideband radiation. The experimental data are shown as solid dots.
