Abstract : An apparatus for producing efficient second harmonic generation and frequency mixing having at least one crystal slice of predetermined thickness and preselected orientation mounted in optical alignment with an incoming laser beam. The proper orientation of the crystal slice together with the choice of laser polarization leads to efficient non-linear optical coupling with low reflection losses. (Author)
