Not your typical mirror: Toward the development of a frequency tripling mirrror

Presented by Dr. Wolfgang Rudolph, Regents' Professor, UNM Department of Physics and Astronomy

Stacks of dielectric films are widely used for optical mirrors, filters and beam splitters. While linear optical interactions of light and the dielectric material control the properties of such optics, nonlinear optical behavior is unavoidable when the incident intensity is large. In our tutorial presentation we will discuss multi-layer structures tailored for third harmonic generation and opportunities and challenges toward the development of frequency tripling mirrors.
