Abstract

We investigate the interaction between fundamental and third harmonic fields in a nonlinear waveguide. We develop a method for evaluating the maximum efficiency of third harmonic (upconversion) and one-third harmonic (downconversion) generation by considering the solitonic behavior of the interaction. This method can be used to engineer waveguide parameters and identify the input power that enables maximum conversion efficiency to be achieved.
