Ultrafast adiabatic second harmonic generation
Second harmonic generation (SHG) is one of the most fundamental techniques used in the photonics laboratory. Widely used in many applications, such as nonlinear spectroscopy, it can suffer from low conversion efficiency to the higher-energy photon when used with short pulses as these can result in low phase-matching. A team from Tel Aviv University, led by Prof Haim Suchowski, recently reported on the technique of adiabatic frequency conversion using a venteon OPCPA to generate efficient broadband conversion of ultrashort few-cycle pulses into the visible range.
