Abstract

We have demonstrated what is to our knowledge the first successful achievement of multiwavelength conversion in an aperiodic optical superlattice (AOS) lithium niobate crystal with equalized gain. The two AOS devices in our experiment, numerically synthesized from 2857 crystal blocks with a unit block thickness of 3.5 µm, have fundamental wavelengths of 1540 and 1545 nm for double-wavelength second-harmonic generation (SHG) and of 1540, 1545, and 1553 nm for triple-wavelength SHG at 50 °C. Our experiment and simulation show that the output spectrum of an AOS wavelength converter is fairly insensitive to typical fabrication errors.
