Second-harmonic generation in a Bessel beam is investigated analytically, with emphasis on the effect of absorption. It is shown that absorption has a strong influence on the far-field beam profile. Numerical results are presented for higher harmonics and for waveform distortion in a Bessel beam that forms a shock.
