Abstract

A temperature-dependent Sellmeier equation is calculated for CdTe. Using the derived Sellmeier equation, the coherence length for second harmonic generation was calculated as well as the variation of the coherence length with temperature. The predicted coherence length is found to be in good agreement with measured values.
