We discuss the possibility of using temporally tailored pump laser pulses to control the temporal width and shape of optical pulses generated in a process of transient sum-frequency mixing in crystals with second-order nonlinearity. Specific calculations performed in a model crystal in the case of fifth-harmonic generation are presented.
