Nonlinear crystals for solid-state lasers
2013 (English)In: Handbook of solid-state lasers: Materials, systems and applications / [ed] Boris Denker, Eugene Shklovsky, Cambridge: Elsevier, 2013, 1, , 660 p.139-167 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This chapter aims first to guide the reader through the basic concepts which are encountered in the field of nonlinear optical materials and frequency conversion. The second aim is to show the historical developments in the area of nonlinear crystals and to expose the current status in this field. Due to remarkable progress in the development of quasi-phase-matched nonlinear media with associated numerous advantages for applications, the development focus is steadily shifting from synthesis of ever newer nonlinear crystals and towards demonstrations of structured or engineered media, as well as towards further improvement of the quality of the crystals used for fabricating such functional structures.
