  5. 5. Advanced nano- and microdomain engineering of Rb-doped KTiOPO4 for nonlinear optical applications

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Charlotte Liljestrand; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; KTiOPO4; nonlinear optics; MOPO; quasi-phase matching; SHG; ferroelectrics; domain structuring; periodic poling; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Fine-pitch ferroelectric domain gratings are extensively used for generation of light in the visible and near-infrared spectral regions through quasi-phase matched (QPM) frequency conversion. Sub-μm QPM devices enables demonstration of nonlinear optics with counterpropagating waves, a field of nonlinear optics which remains sparsely explored due to the difficulty of fabricatinghigh quality gratings.
