Abstract

The efficiency of χ ( 3 ) -based cross-polarized wave generation in cubic crystals is investigated for different crystal orientations. It is shown that holographic-cut orientation is the optimal one. A 30% increase of the efficiency can be achieved with this orientation compared with the commonly used z-cut orientation. Another advantage of the holographic-cut crystal orientation is the weaker dependence of the optimal angle of input polarization on the input intensity.
