Flat-top temperature tuning response in periodically-poled nonlinear crystals

Second harmonic generation via periodically-poled nonlinear materials offers an efficient means of generating high-quality visible light that would be otherwise unattainable with traditional laser sources. While this technology has the potential for implementation in many mass-industrial applications, temperature stability requirements of 0.1 deg.C can make packaging with a pump source problematic. Using our high fidelity poling technique we have achieved precise placement of poled domains in Lithium Niobate based on the resulting mathematical models. These initial devices provide more than 4 deg.C flat-top temperature stability, albeit with a corresponding loss in operational efficiency. Our aim is to implement improved designs in magnesium-doped Lithium Niobate for packaging with near-room temperature diode-based pump sources, as could be applied towards RGB TV and projector applications.

Abstract

Second harmonic generation via periodically-poled nonlinear materials offers an efficient means of generating high-quality visible light that would be otherwise unattainable with traditional laser sources. While this technology has the potential for implementation in many mass-industrial applications, temperature stability requirements of 0.1 deg.C can make packaging with a pump source problematic. Using our high fidelity poling technique we have achieved precise placement of poled domains in Lithium Niobate based on the resulting mathematical models. These initial devices provide more than 4 deg.C flat-top temperature stability, albeit with a corresponding loss in operational efficiency. Our aim is to implement improved designs in magnesium-doped Lithium Niobate for packaging with near-room temperature diode-based pump sources, as could be applied towards RGB TV and projector applications.
