Experimental energy dependence: squares, with linearly polarized input beam at optimum angle β = 64.5 ° ; circles, with CP input beam. Curves are theoretical dependencies. The dashed theoretical curve is obtained for nonperfect circular polarization by using λ / 4 ± λ / 100 phase plates. S values for the theoretical dependencies are given on the top scale. Inset, β scan of the XPW efficiency with linear input polarization; squares, measured with pump energy 6.5 μJ ; curve, theoretical simulation with S = 2 .
