We present a single-pass frequency doubler that efficiently converts broadband near-infrared femtosecond pulses into narrow-spectrum visible picosecond pulses. An optimal control technique is introduced for properly designing aperiodically poled nonlinear crystals to generate visible pulses of the desired amplitude, phase profile, and carrier wavelength.
