Spatial growth evolution of second harmonic conversion efficiency, ηSHG, for non phase matching (NPM), [\Delta k\ne 0], and phase matching (PM), [\Delta k=0], in a `continuous' crystal, and for quasi phase matching (QPM) in a periodic structure. The dashed curve corresponds to (4/π2PM(Z) where ηPM is the conversion efficiency of the phase-matched SHG. [l_c=\pi/\Delta k] is the coherence length.
