    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; nonlinear optics; KTiOPO4; frequency conversion; mode-locked lasers; ultra-fast lasers; visible lasers; short pulses; ultrafast nonlinear optics; diagnostic applications of nonlinear optics; nonlinear optical materials; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Short optical pulses and engineered nonlinear media is a powerful combination. Mode locked pulses exhibit high peak powers and short pulse duration and the engineered ferro-electric KTiOPO4 facilitates several different nonlinear processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Integrated Nonlinear Optics in Silicon Nitride Waveguides

    Author : Clemens Krückel; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; integrated optics devices; nonlinear optics materials; four-wave mixing; nonlinear optical signal processing; wavelength conversion devices; nanostructure fabrication;

    Abstract : Current nanofabrication techniques allow patterning of optical waveguides with submicron cores. This results in strong confinement of light, which leads to high optical intensities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonlinear response in engineered optical materials

    Author : Gustav Strömqvist; Valdas Pasiskevicius; Peter Smith; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nonlinear optics; nonlinear index of refraction; double tungstates; periodic poling; KTiOPO4; quasi-phase matching; parametric down-conversion; mirrorless optical parametric oscillators;

    Abstract : Material and structure engineering are increasingly employed in active optical media,in this context defined as media capable of providing laser or/and optical parametric gain. For laser materials, the main aim of the engineering is to tailor the absorption and emission cross sections in order to optimise the laser performance. READ MORE
