Abstract

We theoretically propose a procedure based on a cascading genetic algorithm for the design of aperiodically quasi-phase-matched gratings for frequency conversion of optical ultrafast pulses during difference-frequency generation. By designing the sequence of a domain inversion grating, different wavelengths at the output idler pulse almost have the same phase response, so femtosecond laser pulses at wavelength 800  nm can be shifted to other wavelengths without group-velocity mismatch.
