    The generation of a femptosecond second harmonic in a bacteriorhodopsin solution is investigated. It is shown that the behavior of the harmonic can be explained by the coherent interference of several contributions from three- and five-wave mixing processes (χ(2) and χ(4)). The magnitude...

    Second harmonic generation (SHG) of light in iron-doped BaTiO[sub 3] crystals occurs primarily at an angle of about 7° to incident λ = 1.06 µm radiation. It is shown that the quasisynchronism is accounted for by a 90° domain structure with a spatial wave vector q[sup ||][011] and a...
