Abstract

We report on the measurement of nonlinear phase shift ϕNL induced by a strong pump at wavelength λp on a weak signal at λs through a cascade of two second-order interactions in a periodically poled lithium-niobate waveguide. The experiment is performed by use of an interferometric scheme especially designed to be insensitive to slow mechanical and thermal drift effects. The observed behavior of ϕNL as a function of pump power and of wavelength difference λpλs is in good agreement with the theoretical predictions.
