## Main Question or Discussion Point

From classical EM theory, we know that if we shine light of frequency ω on a second order non-linear medium, a radiation of frequency 2ω is created. The amplitude of the radiation of frequency 2ω is dependent on the momentum difference between the incident field and the created field. But I can't understand where this momentum mismatch comes from. The momentum should be conserved always.
