The nonlinear equations describing a stationary wavelength conversion process, performed through the cascade of two second-order interactions in a non-centrosymmetric medium, are numerically solved in terms of normalized variables. The behaviour of the conversion efficiency as a function of pump intensity, crystal length, phase mismatch and linear losses is discussed for both bulk and waveguide interactions.
