Abstract

We investigate nonlinear focusing behavior of light beams propagating in beta-barium-borate crystals under mismatched second-harmonic generation. We clearly identify experimentally multiple self-focusing and defocusing regions against the orientation angle and the condition where competing quadratic and cubic nonlinearities perfectly compensate each other (zero-focusing point).
