Abstract

An experimental study of the second-harmonic generation (SHG) properties with nondiffraction-limited radiation is presented. This includes the dependency of the normalized conversion efficiency on the crystal length, the beam quality, and the focusing conditions. A Gauss–Schell-model-based theory of SHG is applied, which gives an improved simulation of the experimental results in comparison to the standard Boyd–Kleinman theory for nondiffraction-limited beams.
