Abstract

Frequency doubling of optical vortices is demonstrated with an optical-optical efficiency exceeding 70%, using a spiral phase plate at a fundamental vortex energy of 10.6 mJ. Beam propagation of the doubled vortex output is also investigated both experimentally and theoretically. Spatial transforms in the output during propagation are observed.
