harmonic frequency generation

Production of coherent radiation of frequency k ν (k = 2 , 3 , ...) from coherent radiation of frequency. In general, this effect is obtained through the interaction of laser light with a suitable optical medium with non-linear polarizability. The case k = 2 is referred to as frequency doubling, k = 3 is frequency tripling and k = 4 is frequency quadrupling. Even higher integer values of k are possible.
