    A phenomenological model of second-harmonic generation (SHG) in ferroelectrics in the absence of phase matching is considered. It is shown that conversion efficiency can be increased owing to a strong dependence of the second-order susceptibility on the second-harmonic intensity. The dependence...

    Optical nonuniformities observed in second-harmonic generation experiments on large KTiOPO4 crystals (dark line defects) are shown to be directly related to the presence of complex domain walls. It is unlikely that these domains are ferroelectric; however, their polar nature suggests they may be...
