Abstract

We demonstrate experimentally the generation of cross-polarized femtosecond pulses in BaF2 crystal in the UV region. We show that unsaturated cross-polarized wave generation in the UV is six times more efficient than in the visible region, and we deduce the corresponding wavelength dispersion of the third-order nonlinearity.

Schematic of the XPW experiment in UV region. BaF 2 is a z-cut sample. β is the angle between the x axis of the crystal and polarization plane of the input beam.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Comparison of cross-polarized wave efficiencies for the two input wavelengths indicated. The solid lines represent quadratic dependence.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

XPW generation efficiency as a function of the angle β for (a) 620 nm and (b) 310 nm fundamental wavelengths. Each of the experimental curves is normalized to the average value of the maxima. The lines are theoretical curves for Gauss/Gauss shapes for spatial/temporal modulation of the fundamental radiation for (a) F = 3.6 and (b) F = 5.76 . The theoretical model used takes into account the processes of phase modulation of the interacting waves and depletion of the fundamental wave [6]. The vertical solid lines indicate optimal β position for low input intensities when F 1 .
