Abstract

We present a comprehensive model for the description of different types of parametric interactions, associated with simultaneous phase-matching of several optical processes: the so-called multistep parametric interactions. Our approach is based on a recently derived single-wave broadband equation that is able to describe general quadratic nonlinear optical interactions and can be solved with modest computational effort. We compare theoretical results with experiments on simultaneous second- and third-harmonic generation performed in periodically poled lithium tantalate crystals.
