## Abstract

A known algorithm for modeling quasi-periodic lattices is used to generate two-dimensional quadratic nonlinear photonic quasi-crystals containing a set of desired discrete spectral components. This allows us to fabricate optical devices in which an arbitrary set of nonlinear optical processes can be efficient. We demonstrate this capability by fabricating two devices: a multidirectional single-frequency doubler and a multidirectional, multifrequency doubler that is capable of nearly collinear doubling of cw radiation in the optical communication C band $(1530\u20131570\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\mathrm{nm})$ through angle tuning.
