RESUMO

We demonstrate low-loss GaN/AlGaN planar waveguides grown by molecular beam epitaxy on sapphire substrates. By using a proper AlGaN cladding layer and reducing surface roughness we reach <1dB/cm propagation losses at 633nm. These low propagation losses allow an efficient second harmonic generation using modal phase matching between a TM0 pump at 1260nm and a TM2 second harmonic at 630nm. A maximal power conversion of 2% is realized with an efficiency of 0.15%·W-1cm-2. We provide a modelling that demonstrates broadband features of GaN/AlGaN platform by showing second harmonic wavelengths tunability from the visible up to the near-infrared spectral region. We discuss drawbacks of modal phase matching and propose a novel solution which allows a drastic improvement of modal overlaps with the help of a planar polarity inversion. This new approach is compatible with low propagation losses and may allow as high as 100%·W-1cm-2 conversion efficiencies in the future.

RESUMO

We propose a new mode adapter which allows more efficient launching of the optical power selectively in the fundamental mode of a multimode waveguide. Theoretical and experimental results confirm that such a mode adapter increases the performances in terms of coupling efficiency, coupling tolerances and transmitted power with respect to previously proposed solutions. Proof of principle of device operation is obtained with a simple Coupled Mode Theory model. Experimental results are obtained at a wavelength of 840 nm in Lithium Niobate Soft Proton Exchanged waveguides and agree very well with theoretical predictions.

RESUMO

We present the measurements of hemispherical elastic scattering of light guided by different modes of a planar LiNbO3 waveguide. It is shown that the fundamental and the lowest-order modes are more sensitive to the scattering properties of the air-core interface, whereas higher-order modes are more sensitive to the optical inhomogeneities of the core-substrate interface. We also demonstrate that because of static polarization of LiNbO3 crystal, the air-core interface is sensitive to the presence of dust particles in air, which causes a change in the scattered light based on time of observation. This sensitivity could be used to elaborate compact sensors of air contamination.

RESUMO

A theoretical method and an original numerical procedure to calculate the light spectra generated by optical parametric florescence (OPF) in a periodically polled medium is presented. This efficient procedure allows us to precisely study the generation in a periodically poled lithium niobate crystal. As an example, the evolution of the OPF spectra as a function of the pump frequency is presented as an animation. Furthermore, we show that OPF spectra can be generated when the pump frequency goes below the degeneracy.
