Abstract

We consider the possibility of generating second-harmonic radiation by the interaction of two counter-propagating fundamental waves in a quasi-phase-matched second-order nonlinear medium in a waveguide. The conversion efficiency reaches a maximum at an optimum pump intensity. For a large range of pump intensities below a certain pump intensity the efficiency is larger than that for the copropagating configuration. The saturation intensities at which the efficiency reaches 72% for poled KTiOPO4 and LiNbO3 can be achieved with lasers now available.

  7. However, if QPM is not achieved, the conversion efficiency is proportional to [sin(k2ωL)/(k2ωL)]2. The difference of indices of refraction between the fundamental and SH waves has no effect on the conversion efficiency in our scheme.
