Abstract

Second-harmonic generation (SHG) is investigated for a dispersive medium with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities. All possible solutions assuming a zero initial value for the second harmonic are obtained and tabulated. Based on the analysis, the optimal condition for SHG is deduced and the dependence of the SHG conversion efficiency upon the nonlinearity, the dispersion, and the input field intensity is discussed. Also, a thorough numerical study of the behavior of SHG efficiency is performed and the results are reported. A technique for estimation of the unknown third-order nonlinearity coefficients of a material from SHG observation is proposed.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Computer estimation of J versus T3 and T4, which shows the dependence of solutions for SHG on the parameters T3 = (T2T1)/4 = R(2γ12γ22 + γ21 − 2γ11)/4β and T4 = (ΔP + T1)/2 = Δk/2βR + R(2γ11γ21)/2β.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Numerical evaluation of the changes in (a) the maximum conversion efficiency and (b) the medium length required to achieve the maximum in a dispersive medium with quadratic and cubic nonlinearities.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Contour maps for (a) the maximum conversion efficiency and (b) the length of the medium required to achieve the maximum. Each contour line is plotted at intervals of 5% for the efficiency and at intervals of 0.2 for the normalized medium length. One can also use these maps when T4 has a negative value by changing the signs of T3 and T4 simultaneously (i.e., T3T3 and T4 → −T4), since the maximum efficiency and the medium length are invariant to changes in sign of T3 and T4.
