Abstract

We have demonstrated super quasi-phase matching (QPM) in a super periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), which is composed of multiple ordinary PPLN cells. When super QPM is achieved, the slight phase mismatch in each PPLN cell can be further compensated for, and the relevant second harmonic generation is facilitated greatly. This mechanism provides an insightful means to relieve the limitation imposed by sample fabrication inaccuracy and will open up a promising avenue toward highly efficient nonlinear interactions.
