Abstract

A calculation procedure for optical harmonic generation in multilayered structures has been developed. This formalism is based on a Green-function analysis and a transfer-matrix technique and permits a clear physical interpretation of harmonic light propagating through the structure. It is suited to computer calculation and hence applicable to arbitrary multilayered geometries. The usefulness of the method has been experimentally demonstrated in reflected second-harmonic generation from a GaP–AlP four-layered structure.
