Abstract

Optical activity changes the refractive indices of a crystal, and these changes should be taken into account when calculating the phase-matching angles. A method for calculating this change in refractive indices is presented and the effects on the phase-matching direction in KTiOPO4 are shown. Although, in this case, the change is small, it may be considerably larger in other crystals.
