Abstract

For the first time to our knowledge, continuous nonsegmented channel waveguides in periodically poled KTiOPO4 with guided orthogonal polarizations are used to demonstrate type II background-free second harmonic generation in the telecom band with 1.6%(Wcm2) normalized conversion efficiency. This constitutes a 90-fold improvement in aggregate conversion efficiency over its free space counterpart. Simulations show that the guided wave device should enable the measurement of timing fluctuations of optical pulse trains at the attosecond level in an optical cross correlation scheme.

Fig. 1

(a)–(c) Measured PPKTP guided mode intensity profiles of FH TE, FH TM, and SH TE, respectively. The y axis of the crystal is along the length scale on the figure, and the propagation direction is the x axis. The FH vacuum wavelength is 1505 nm .

Fig. 2

The solid circles depict the generated SH versus the FH ( 1505 nm ) power, both measured at the output of the 1 - cm -long PPKTP waveguide. The solid curve is the quadratic fit to the measurements, and the dashed curves represent its 95% confidence bounds that encompass the hollow circles from theory.
