Abstract

A method of calculating the characteristics of phase-matching in both uniaxial and biaxial crystals is presented. Although significant work has been done to characterize the collinear case of phase-matching and to present many of its applications, the non-collinear case also has unique characteristics, leading to several useful applications. The method presented here allows calculations to be made for both the collinear and non-collinear cases, and allows a much broader group of non linear crystals and configurations to be studied.
