## harmonic frequency generation

https://doi.org/10.1351/goldbook.H02744
Production of @C01130@ of frequency $$k\ \nu$$($$k=2,3,...$$) from @C01130@ of frequency. In general, this effect is obtained through the interaction of @L03459@ light with a suitable optical medium with non-linear @P04711@. The case $$k=2$$ is referred to as @F02527@, $$k=3$$ is frequency tripling and $$k=4$$ is frequency quadrupling. Even higher integer values of $$k$$ are possible.
