Abstract

A nonlinear optical crystal YCa4OBO33 (YCOB) is phase matchable for third-harmonic generation (THG) of a Nd:YAG laser by type  I mixing between 1.064 and 0.532 μm. By partial substitution of Gd for Y in YCOB, a solid solution GdxY1-xCa4OBO33 gradually changes the phase-matching angles of THG to θ,ϕ=90°,90°. We present the properties of noncritically phase-matched THG in GdxY1-xCa4OBO33 x=0.28.
