Second harmonic generation under phase-mismatched conditions

Dominik Kühn

Second harmonic generation is an important effect of nonlinear optics. It is well discussed for cw processes, so in this project we want to show it´s properties for ultrashort pulses through the use of the simulation software VirtualLab Fusion \cite{vlfusion}. The fundamental principles are explained in my previous report 'Second harmonic generation under phase-matching conditions'. In this report we discuss the physical effects when phase-matching conditions are not met.
