His team therefore initially sends the light particle through a nonlinear crystal
illuminated by a strong laser.
Such devices use the fact that whenfemtosecond laser pulses enter the interior of a nonlinear crystal
together with a week fluorescence signal, a third beam appears, with frequency being the sum of both frequencies of the primary beams.
Figure 2 is the evolution of signal phase in the transverse direction of nonlinear crystal
. Figure 3 is the phase curve of output signal as pump phase [PHI](x) equals x2 and x3.
We used a 3 mm-long 5 mol% MgO doped PPLN with single grating period of 31 [micro]m as the nonlinear crystal
. It is antireflective-coated at 1035 nm (R < 0.5%) and 2070 nm (R < 0.5%) on both surfaces.

-Bis Thiourea Zinc Chloride, J.
In this case, the nonlinear crystal
mixed different parts of the picture, allowing signal and noise to interact.
The C|O.sub.2~ laser frequency is doubled with a |Tl.sub.3~As|Se.sub.3~ (TAS) nonlinear crystal
. TAS harmonic generators are completely passive and have produced the highest measured efficiency of 57 percent in the far infrared.
Langasite's broad transparent region, moderate effective nonlinear coefficient, high damage threshold, small spatial walk-off, large size scalability, and good thermomechanical properties make it very promising as a mid-IR nonlinear crystal
Physicists have discovered that if they shine a laser beam into a certain type of so-called nonlinear crystal
, roughly one in ten billion of the photons that pass through it will come out transformed into two photons.
The topics include oxide laser crystals doped with rare earth and transition metal ions, nonlinear crystals
for solid-state lasers, operation regimes for solid-state lasers, neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet and neodymium-doped yttrium orthovanadate, microchip lasers, mid-infrared optical parametric oscillators, surgical solid-state lasers and their clinical applications, and environmental applications of solid-state lasers.
