Abstract

We propose a method to realize perfect quasi-phase matching (QPM) for nonlinear optical interactions involving Gaussian beams. Using this method, both the wave-vector mismatching and the Gouy phase shift can be compensated. Numerical simulations for the third-harmonic generation show that conversion efficiency near to 100% can be realized even if the fundamental wave is tightly focused, which is difficult or even impossible with the conventional QPM method.
