Abstract

We propose a novel configuration of efficient type I second-harmonic generation (SHG) with ultrashort laser pulses by group-velocity compensation. The configuration is composed of a type I SHG crystal and a series of alternating time-delay and type I SHG crystals. The numerical calculations show that the conversion efficiency can be increased to almost 100% by using crystal pairs in series, and the duration of the second-harmonic pulse is almost the same as that of the fundamental pulse.
