Abstract

We demonstrate high resolution and increased efficiency background-free time-to-space conversion using spectrally resolved non-degenerate and collinear SFG in a bulk PPLN crystal. A serial-to-parallel resolution factor of 95 and a time window of 42 ps were achieved. A 60-fold increase in conversion efficiency slope compared with our previous work using a BBO crystal [D. Shayovitz and D. M. Marom, Opt. Lett. 36, 1957 (2011)] was recorded. Finally the measured 40 GHz narrow linewidth of the output SFG signal implies the possibility to extract phase information by employing coherent detection techniques.

Time-to-space conversion concept. The time domain information carried by an OTDM channel is transferred to a space domain image via dispersed wave SFG, enabling direct or coherent detection. Note that a non-collinear phase-matching configuration is shown here for clarity, whereas the current experiment utilizes collinear phase-matching for an extended interaction length, necessitating the use of a bandpass filter for separating the SFG light from the background SHG of the signal and reference beams.
