Abstract:

This report sketches the basic theory of optical second harmonic generation in sufficient generality to include materials with absorption at the fundamental, the second harmonic, or both. It is shown how such absorptions can result in enlarged values of the coefficient of second harmonic generation. The effects of the basic light propagation properties of the material as they contribute to the overall production of second harmonic radiation are further developed. In particular, a discussion is given of the relations between the elements of the second harmonic generation tensor, and the relations between these coefficients appropriate to the crystals of interest in this study.
