Although significant work has been done to characterize collinear phase matching and to present many of its applications, noncollinear phase matching in both uniaxial and biaxial crystals also has unique characteristics, leading to several useful applications. The software presented here calculates of phase matching in both the collinear and noncollinear cases, and allows a large set of nonlinear crystals and configurations to be studied.
The software is available as a self-installing executable file. Download Version 1.0 for PC:
