Abstract

A new technique for reducing timing jitter by using a cascaded second-order nonlinear process in quasi-phase-matched (QPM) LiNbO3 waveguides is proposed. It was found that the timing jitter of a signal at QPM wavelength is not transferred to the converted pulses during cascading in a 30-mm-long LiNbO3 QPM waveguide. Timing-jitter transfer characteristics in QPM LiNbO3 waveguides are evaluated by calculation of pulse evolution, and retiming of 1.5-ps pulses in 10- and 30-mm-long waveguides is demonstrated experimentally.
