Enhanced Cerenkov Second-Harmonic Generation in a Photonic Band Gap Lithium Niobate Waveguide
Frontiers in Optics 2004
Second harmonic generation (SHG) in planar, photonic band gap (PBG) waveguides was experimentally investigated. The waveguide mode was tuned to a band edge resonance to confine and enhance the guided electromagnetic field. The conversion efficiency in the PBG was enhanced around ten times above the SHG signal without a PBG.
