Estimating efficiency of sum frequency generation

Main Question or Discussion Point

I want to estimate the efficiency of SFG in a BBO crystal for the situation when one pulse has much higher energy than the other (nJ compared to fJ), and the beams cross at an angle in the crystal.

Can anyone recommend a resource that would help with this?

It might be a little overkill, but Boyd's "Nonlinear Optics" has a couple of relevant sections about this topic.

Thanks...I've been looking at that one. Useful, but I have a feeling that there are other losses in practice. And the non-collinear geometry isn't really touched on.
