Abstract

We report a new method of tuning the second-harmonic signal generated in a periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) waveguide. This technique relies on the recent progress in the fabrication of PPLNs on x-cut substrates along with periodical coplanar electrodes to reduce the tuning voltage while preserving the conversion efficiency. Our scheme exploits a type I interaction implemented in a titanium waveguide to impede cancellation of the electro-optical coefficients and to minimize the group-velocity mismatch between the first- and second-harmonic modes. The tuning range covers 58nm with an applied voltage of ±150V.
