Abstract

Maxwell equations were used to simulate and determine the cause of the temporal splitting of the second harmonic field produced by femtosecond pulses in the vicinity of a nonlinear dielectric. Analysis was performed under phase-mismatched conditions. Results show that pulse splitting occurs even without material color dispersion and is a product of the basic nonlinear interaction in the phase-mismatched regime.
