To improve the frequency-doubling efficiency in type II second-harmonic generation (SHG), a fundamental walkoff-compensated SHG scheme was geometrically analyzed and its usefulness was experimentally demonstrated in a 12-mm length of KTiOPO4 with 20% power enhancement and in a 10-mm length of LiB3O5 with double enhancement.
