Abstract

Third-harmonic generation (THG) has been investigated in the monoclinic BiB3O6. The symmetry and birefringence analysis revealed that there are phase-matching conditions for the direct third-order nonlinear process, where the cascading second-order processes are precluded by the zero effective nonlinearity. The first phase-matched pure χ(3) THG in a noncentrosymmetric crystal is presented together with the improved Sellmeier and thermo-optic dispersion formulas.
