Abstract

Achromatic phase matching (APM), a favorable method in increasing phase matching bandwidth, is explored for second harmonic generation of ultrashort pulses based on a typical grating telescope system. A set of coupled equations incorporating angular dispersion is constructed in the space–time domain. An analytic solution with a pump of tilting pulsed Gaussian beam to the equations is given under the undepleted pump approximation. With the aid of matrix formalism, some properties of the conversion are demonstrated. Though a maximal phase matching bandwidth is obtained, angular dispersion makes the conversion active only around the geometrical focus. Theory shows that APM does not require an overall pulse-front matching in the conversion process.
