Abstract

We report the observation of light-enhanced electro-optic spectral tuning in annealed proton-exchanged, asymmetric domain-duty-cycle periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) channel waveguides for second-harmonic generation. The spectral tuning rate was increased rapidly from 0.07 nm ( kV mm ) to a saturated value of 0.32 nm ( kV mm ) in a 30%/70% domain-duty-cycle PPLN waveguide when the fundamental pump power near 1534 nm was increased from 0.6 to 46 mW . The second-harmonic laser power at 767 nm was identified to be the source enhancing the spectral tuning.
