Abstract

A new method of efficient sum-frequency generation for broadband input fields is theoretically analyzed and experimentally demonstrated. The method involves using an arrangement with two or more nonlinear mixing crystals, with a time-delay line situated between the crystals, for one of the fundamental fields relative to the other. The delay line temporally shifts the fundamental fields, one relative to another, by a time longer than their coherence time. The improvement in efficiency for sum-frequency generation using this method is much higher than for difference-frequency generation.
