Comparison between (a) collinear and (b) special non-collinear phase matching for (oeo) type-II SHG. [{\bf k}^{\omega,o}], [{\bf k}^{\omega,e}] and [{\bf k}^{2\omega,o}] are the wavevectors, [{\bf S}^{\omega,o}], [{\bf S}^{\omega,e}] and [{\bf S}^{2\omega,o}] are the Poynting vectors of the fundamental and harmonic waves, and [{\bf E}^{\omega,o}], [{\bf E}^{\omega,e}] and [{\bf E}^{2\omega,o}] are the electric field vectors; ρ is the walk-off angle in the collinear case and the angle between [{\bf k}^{\omega,o}] and [{\bf k}^{\omega,e}] inside the crystal for the non-collinear interaction.
