Abstract
We show both theoretically and experimentally that cross-polarized wave generation (XPWG) is more efficient when the input fundamental beam propagates along the [011] direction in a cubic crystal than along the previously used [001] direction. With a [011]-cut BaF2 crystal we measured the highest to date XPWG conversion efficiencies. We prove another very important advantage of the [011]-cut approach: weak induced phase mismatch and consequently no need for its compensation.
