Abstract

We implement a direct three-dimensional calculation of Čerenkov-radiation-type frequency doubling in an optical channel waveguide by using a finite-element guided-beam simulator. The simulator can predict an optimum configuration and the conversion efficiency of miniaturized frequency doublers that utilize guided-to-radiation-mode interactions in nonlinear channel waveguides. Computed results are shown for blue-light generation through the frequency doubling in a proton-exchanged MgO:LiNbO3 channel waveguide.
