Abstract

We theoretically analyze a method for matching group velocities of fundamental and second harmonic femtosecond pulses during phase matched frequncy doubling by predispersing the fundamental pulse with a prism. The method permits improved conversion efficiency by allowing crystal lengths of several millimeters without sacrificing second harmonic pulse duration. Second harmonic pulse energy and duration are analyzed for β-BaB2O4, and limiting experimental factors are discussed. The results show that the method is most advantageous for incident pulses between 0.1- and 1.0-ps duration and microjoule and higher energies and that second harmonic pulse duration and conversion efficiency are not highly sensitive to optical misalignments of the order of 1°.
