Abstract

The tuning curves with temperature and incidence angle for second-harmonic generation were asymmetrically distorted and broadened with increasing intensity for narrow input fundamental beams in periodically poled KTiOPO4. Multiple phenomena including mutual self-focusing of the fundamental and harmonic, cascading, quadratic soliton generation, and artificially induced walk-off (for light incidence away from the poling axis) contribute, in good agreement with theory.
