Observation of quadratic spatial solitons in periodically poled lithium niobate
We report what are to our knowledge the first observation and characterization of quadratic spatial solitons in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). Using a Nd:YAG (1064nm) source, we observed self-trapped solitary-wave propagation over more than six diffraction lengths as a result of the cascaded quadratic nonlinear process. Low-threshold operation (5kW peak power) was measured for the quasi-phase-matched PPLN structure designed for frequency doubling.

Abstract

We report what are to our knowledge the first observation and characterization of quadratic spatial solitons in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). Using a Nd:YAG (1064nm) source, we observed self-trapped solitary-wave propagation over more than six diffraction lengths as a result of the cascaded quadratic nonlinear process. Low-threshold operation (5kW peak power) was measured for the quasi-phase-matched PPLN structure designed for frequency doubling.
