Abstract

The reflection of bulk quadratic solutions incident onto a quadratically nonlinear interface in periodically poled potassium titanyl phosphate was observed. The interface consisted of the boundary between two quasi-phase-matched regions displaced from each other by a half-period. At high intensities and small angles of incidence the soliton is reflected.

Illustrative cw simulations. Top views of the evolution of a 16.5µm waist fundamental beam incident at an input internal angle of 0.25° onto the interface in a PPKTP sample for a small positive wave-vector mismatch: (a) intensity, 3 GW/cm2; initial separation from the interface, two beam widths; (b) intensity 7 GW/cm2; initial separation from the interface, two beam widths; (c) intensity, 7 GW/cm2; initial separation from the interface, one beam width. Thickness of the intermediate region, 0.4 beam width. All simulations were conducted with the actual quasi-phase-matched (QPM) structure (i.e., fast-varying periodical poling) rather than with averaged models.
