Nonlinear devices

  • Walter Koechner
Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 1)

Abstract

Nonlinear optical devices, such as harmonic generators and parametric oscillators, provide a means of extending the frequency range of available laser sources. In 1961, Franken [10.1] and coworkers detected ultraviolet light at twice the frequency of a ruby laser beam when this beam was propagated through a quartz crystal. This experiment marked the beginning of an intense investigation into the realm of the nonlinear optical properties of matter.
