Abstract

Coupling of optical parametric processes in an optical superlattice through quadratic nonlinearity was analyzed theoretically. Solving the coupled equations, we found that efficient quasi-phase-matched third-harmonic (TH) generation depends not only on the magnitude of the coupling coefficients but also on their ratio. Theoretically, all the fundamental energy can be transferred to the TH at a particular ratio. In other cases, there exists an optimum condition that corresponds to a maximum TH conversion efficiency. The result is of practical importance for the design of TH devices.
