Third-harmonic-generation experiments at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory were recently reported by Linford et al. [ Appl. Opt. 21, 3633 ( 1982)]. Here the theory pertaining to these experiments is discussed in detail. The Livermore results are shown to be in accordance with calculations using the harmonic-generation code mixer, whose predictions of highly efficient frequency tripling were first confirmed experimentally at the University of Rochester using the Type II/Type II polarization-mismatch configuration. The Livermore experiments confirm the advantages of this configuration.
