Abstract
Utilization of the dispersion of a prism pair for the enhancement of second harmonic generation in the two-pass arrangement is proposed. The second harmonic intensity is increased by a factor of four compared to that of the one- pass method, without the narrowing of the bandwidth. The calculations show that the arrangement can be used for efficient frequency doubling of 50-fs pulses at central wavelength of 800 nm.
