Abstract

The efficiency of third-harmonic generation in cuprous oxide was measured. Intensities followed a noncubic power law that indicates nonperturbative behavior. Polarization anisotropy of the harmonic generation was demonstrated and related to the third-order susceptibility. The results will influence the understanding of harmonic generation in centrosymmetric materials and are potentially relevant to device design and the interpretation of exciton behavior.
