Abstract

We recently described a general solution to the phase-matching problem that arises when one wishes to perform an arbitrary number of nonlinear optical processes in a single medium [ Phys. Rev. Lett. 95, 133901 (2005) ]. Here we outline in detail the implementation of the solution for a one-dimensional photonic quasicrystal, which acts as a simultaneous frequency doubler for three independent optical beams. We confirm this solution experimentally using an electric-field poled K Ti O P O 4 crystal. In optimizing the device, we find—contrary to common practice—that simple duty cycles of 100% and 0% may yield the highest efficiencies, and we show that our device is more efficient than a comparable device based on periodic quasi-phase matching.
