The authors demonstrate broadband femtosecond phase-matched noncollinear second-harmonic generation (SHG) in strontium barium niobate crystals with random ferroelectric domains. The process is similar to femtosecond SHG in ultrathin crystals, but it results in higher efficiency and exact mapping of the spectrum of the fundamental field into the spectrum of the second harmonics, even for pulses with complex spectral profiles. The observed parametric conversion process can be used as an efficient...[Show more]
