Abstract

Simultaneous phase- and group-velocity-matched generation of ultrashort optical second-harmonic pulses based on a quasi-phase-matched Čerenkov second-harmonic generation scheme is proposed. We compare our scheme with other schemes with respect to its ability to achieve high conversion efficiency, its enhancement with respect to cw second-harmonic generation, and its sensitivity to waveguide-period fluctuation; ion-exchanged KTP and LiNbO3 waveguides are considered in the evaluation. We believe our proposed scheme is easy to implement, and there is no constraint on crystal length in achieving high efficiency as well as in preserving an ultrashort pulse width. 100% efficiency is potentially obtainable from sufficiently long crystals.
