Ultrafast thin-disk laser (TDL) oscillators provide higher intracavity pulse energy, average power, and peak power levels than any other femtosecond laser oscillator technology. They are suitable for driving extreme nonlinear interactions directly inside the laser oscillator. High harmonic generation (HHG) driven inside ultrafast TDL oscillators is a very recent approach for the generation of...

Investigation of NLO properties of substituted (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicenes by semiempirical and DFT methods

Daul, Claude ; Ciofini, Ilaria ; Weber, Valéry

In this article, we propose a theoretical study of static and dynamic polarizability α, first hyperpolarizability β, and second hyperpolarizability γ of substituted (M)-tetrathia-[7]-helicenes. Both a semiempirical approach, in the case of static and dynamic properties, and density functional theory, in the case of static electric properties, were used. The nonlinear optical (NLO) properties...
