Abstract

Harmonic generation of light in thin-film optical waveguides is analyzed theoretically by evaluating the total electromagnetic fields that satisfy the polarization driven wave equation and the electromagnetic boundary conditions at both interfaces. Analytical expressions are given for the amplitude of the growing wave component of the total fields. The results agree with those of normal mode analysis only in the limit of phase-matched harmonic generation. This analysis is believed to be applicable to a large range of wave interaction phenomena in integrated optics.
