Multicrystal second harmonic generation experiment

A paper by the group led by Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh hits a record number of downloads in OSA journals. The paper \"Multicrystal, continuous-wave, single-pass second-harmonic generation with 56% efficiency \" by the group led by ICREA Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh, published in Optics Letters, October 15th, 2010, has become a reference publication in the field of Nonlinear Optics, being the most downloaded paper from Optical Materials Express and Optics Letters journals over the past two years.

The paper reports an innovative, yet simple and compact implementation of second harmonic generation of continuous-wave laser radiation that can provide the highest conversion efficiency at any given fundamental power.
