    We show the ability of calcium barium niobate as a nonlinear material to produce conical second harmonic generation in a broad frequency range. The nonlinear properties of this system are based on the broad sized microdomain distribution appearing naturally in the as-grown crystal. The large...

    We study experimentally second harmonic generation in a one-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystal with randomized inverted-domain structure. We show that the randomness enables one to realize an efficient broadband emission of high-quality second harmonic beam.

    The magnetization of 10-nm Gd films on W (110) has been investigated with second-harmonic generation (SHG). We observed a strong second-harmonic (SH) yield, which we attribute to resonance enhancement by the well-known Gd (0001) d-like surface state above the Fermi level. Since this state is...

    Monitoring oxidation steps is an important factor during the fabrication of semiconductor devices, because transistor performance can be greatly affected by defects in the passivation layer. As an example, we discuss the formation of a gate stack in metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) devices using...
