Terahertz (THz) generation by periodically-poled RbTiOPO4 (PPRTP) with a quasi-phase-matching scheme based on cascaded difference frequency generation (DFG) processes is theoretically analyzed. The cascaded Stokes and anti-Stokes interaction processes are investigated from coupled wave equations. The THz intensities and quantum conversion efficiency are calculated. Compared with that of non-cascaded DFG processes, the THz intensity in 7-order cascaded DFG processes is increased to 2.95 times. The quantum conversion efficiency of 149.9% in cascaded processes can be realized, which exceeds the Manley-Rowe limit.
