Abstract

Temporal and spectral characteristics of pulses resulting from second-harmonic generation of 120-fs amplified Ti:sapphire laser pulses up to 0.1 mJ at a wavelength of 815 nm in type I KDP crystal were experimentally and theoretically analyzed. Widely different behaviors were observed, according to the sign of the phase mismatch. Comparison between the theoretical simulation and experimental data demonstrates that the competition between third- and second-order nonlinear phenomena strongly modifies the structure of the pulses generated.
