Fourth-harmonic generation via nonlinear diffraction in a 2D LiNbO3 nonlinear photonic crystal from mid-IR ultrashort pulses

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Five conical harmonic beams are generated from the interaction of femtosecond mid-infrared (mid-IR) pulses at a nominal input wavelength of 1997 nm with a 2D LiNbO3 nonlinear photonic crystal with Sierpinski fractal superlattices. The main diffraction orders and the corresponding reciprocal vectors involved in the interaction are ascertained. Second and third harmonics emerging at external angles of 23.82° and 36.75° result from nonlinear Čerenkov and Bragg diffractions, respectively. Three pathways of fourth-harmonic generation are observed at external angles of 14.21°, 36.5°, and 53.48°, with the first one resulting from nonlinear Čerenkov diffraction, and the other two harmonics are generated via different cascaded processes.
