    Abstract. Theoretical and experimental studies of phase-modulation effects in degenerate four-wave mixing are presented in this paper. Our experiments and analysis show that phase-modulation effects change the phase-matching condition and lead to a decrease in signal output and a degradation in...

    The processing of synthetic quartz glass by use of the second harmonic of a picosecond Nd:YVO4 laser was examined. The threshold irradiation pulse energy density to process the glass using a picosecond pulse is about 3.8 J/(cm2 pulse). The groove depth does not increase effectively by scanning...

    Frequency doubling of spatially limited laser beams in nonlinear optical crystals is analyzed. Conditions are found under which the diaphragm aperture effect limiting the efficiency of the process of second optical harmonic generation can be reduced. It is shown that a spatial shift of mutually...

    We report on the generation of tunable light around 400 nm by frequency-doubling ultrashort laser pulses whose spectral phase is modulated by a sum of sinusoidal functions. The linewidth of the ultraviolet band produced is narrower than 1 nm, in contrast to the 12 nm linewidth of the...

    15-fs, 15-μJ light pulses at the central wavelength of 515 nm were generated by two-stage nonlinear compression of 300-fs, 150-μJ ytterbium laser pulses. The compression was based on the pulse spectrum broadening by self-phase modulation in gas filled capillary and second harmonic...

    Ultrashort laser pulses can modify the inner structure of fused silica, generating refractive index changes varying from soft positive (type I) light guiding forms to negative (type II) values with void presence and anisotropic sub-wavelength modulation. We investigate electronic and structural...
