Abstract

Third-harmonic-generation processes in crystals are governed by the fourth-rank tensor χ i j k l ( 3 ), which reflects the crystal symmetry. In this case, the third-order nonlinear susceptibility tensor can be contracted to the compact matrix form χ i m ( 3 ). The matrices χ i m ( 3 ) for isotropic media and all 32 crystallo-graphic point groups are presented. With these matrices, the analytic expressions of third-order effective nonlinear susceptibility can be easily derived.
