Abstract

We propose the enhancement of the second harmonic generation process in an optical hexagonal microcavity, consisting of a nonlinear material, via total internal reflection quasi-phasematching technique. We present preliminary numerical simulation results showing resonance operation in a suitably designed hexagonally shaped optical microresonator, which demonstrates the operating feasibility of the proposed scheme. The SHG efficiency was calculated using lithium niobate as the nonlinear material. High optical quality hexagonal superstructures can be manufactured routinely by chemical etching of inverted ferroelectric domains in this material.
