Overview of Nonlinear Integrated Optics

Abstract

Nonlinear integrated optics is defined as the implementation of nonlinear optical interactions in planar and channel waveguides. This field has grown dramatically in the past few years for two reasons. First, for optical data storage and xerography, there is a pressing need for efficient doubling of semiconductor lasers. This has led to increased interest in second harmonic generation in waveguides, the goal being to produce a few milliwatts of deep blue light with 40 mW input. Second, a concept of ultrafast processing of optically coded information has emerged. It involves using an intensity-dependent refractive index to produce all-optical control of switching functions. In both cases, the goal is to be able to use semiconductor lasers.

Keywords
