Generation of new components are described by Maxwells equations. dipole radiation pattern 1 2 1 2 + 1 2 + 3 1 2 = + 1 N atoms: if the relative phasing of the dipoles is correct, the field radiation by each dipole will add constructively in the forward direction, leading to radiation in the form of a welldefined beam. Acts as a phased array of dipoles if the phasematching condition is satisfied. Forward intensity is N 2 larger than single atom. 1 2 + Consider a secondorder NL process such as sumfrequency generation (SFG).
