Third-harmonic generation in xenon in a pulsed jet and a gas cell
Summary, in English
We report experimental studies of harmonic generation in Xe using a 1064 nm Nd-YAG laser. Third-harmonic conversion is observed in a positively dispersive medium, using a tight-focusing geometry. The intensity of third-harmonic generation in a gas cell varies much more steeply with the laser intensity than a cubic law. The reason for the breaking of the phase matching condition is discussed.
