2 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 2 Question: Is it possible to change the color of a monochromatic light? output NLO sample input Answer: Not without a laser light

3 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 3 Nicolaas Bloembergen (born 1920) has carried out pioneering studies in nonlinear optics since the early 1960s. He shared the 1981 Nobel Prize with Arthur Schawlow.

4 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 4 Part 0 : Comparison Linear optics: ★ Optical properties, such as the refractive index and the absorption coefficient independent of light intensity. ★ The principle of superposition, a fundamental tenet of classical, holds. ★ The frequency of light cannot be altered by its passage through the medium. ★ Light cannot interact with light; two beams of light in the same region of a linear optical medium can have no effect on each other. Thus light cannot control light.

5 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 5 Part 0 : Comparison Nonlinear optics: change ★ The refractive index, and consequently the speed of light in an optical medium, does change with the light intensity. ★ The principle of superposition is violated. ★ Light can alter its frequency as it passes through a nonlinear optical material (e.g., from red to blue!). ★ Light can control light; photons do interact Light interacts with light via the medium. The presence of an optical field modifies the properties of the medium which, in turn, modify another optical field or even the original field itself.

11 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 11 The Nonlinear Wave Equation nonlinear wave equation

12 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 12 There are two approximate approaches to solving the nonlinear wave equation: ★ The first is an iterative approach known as the Born approximation. ★ The second approach is a coupled-wave theory in which the nonlinear wave equation is used to derive linear coupled partial differential equations that govern the interacting waves. This is the basis of the more advanced study of wave interactions in nonlinear media.

25 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 25 Figure An example of frequency conversion in a nonlinear crystal Although the incident pair of waves at frequencies w 1 and w 2 produce polarization densities at frequencies 0, 2w l, 2w 2, w l +w 2, and w 1 -w 2, all of these waves are not necessarily generated, since certain additional conditions (phase matching) must be satisfied, as explained presently. 点击查看 flash 动画

26 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 26 Phase Matching where Frequency-Matching Condition Phase-Matching Condition Figure The phase-matching condition

27 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 27 ★ same direction: nw 3 /c 0 =nw 1 /c 0 + nw 2 /c 0, w 3 =w 1 +w 2 frequency matching ensures phase matching. ★ different refractive indices, n l, n 2, and n 3 : n 3 w 3 /c 0 =n 1 w 1 /c 0 +n 2 w 2 /c 0 n 3 w 3 =n 1 w 1 +n 2 w 2 The phase-matching condition is then independent of the frequency-matching condition w 3 =w 1 +w 2 ; both conditions must be simultaneously satisfied. Precise control of the refractive indices at the three frequencies is often achieved by appropriate selection of the polarization and in some cases by control of the temperature.

28 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 28 Three- Wave Mixing We assume that only the component at the sum frequency w 3 =w 1 +w 2 satisfies the phase-matching condition. Other frequencies cannot be sustained by the medium since they are assumed not to satisfy the phase-matching condition. Once wave 3 is generated, it interacts with wave 1 and generates a wave at the difference frequency w 2 =w 3 -w 1. Waves 3 and 2 similarly combine and radiate at w 1. The three waves therefore undergo mutual coupling in which each pair of waves interacts and contributes to the third wave. three-wave mixing parametric interaction

29 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 29 parametric interaction ◆ Waves 1 and 2 are mixed in an up-converter, generating a wave at a higher frequency w 3 =w 1 +w 2. A down-converter is realized by an interaction between waves 3 and 1 to generate wave 2, at the difference frequency w 2 =w 3 -w 1. ◆ Waves 1, 2, and 3 interact so that wave 1 grows. The device operates as an amplifier and is known as a parametric amplifier. Wave 3, called the pump, provides the required energy, whereas wave 2 is an auxiliary wave known as the idler wave. The amplified wave is called the signal. ◆ With proper feedback, the parametric amplifier can operate as a parametric oscillator, in which only a pump wave is supplied.

31 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 31 Two-wave mixing can occur only in the degenerate case, w 2 =2w 1, in which the second-harmonic of wave 1 contributes to wave 2; and the subharmonic w 2 /2 of wave 2, which is at the frequency difference w 2 -w 1, contributes to wave 1. Parametric devices are used for coherent light amplification, for the generation of coherent light at frequencies where no lasers are available (e.g., in the UV band), and for the detection of weak light at wavelengths for which sensitive detectors do not exist.

41 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 41 Figure Second-harmonic generation. (a) A wave of frequency w incident on a nonlinear crystal generates a wave of frequency 2w. (b) Two photons of frequency w combine to make one photon of frequency 2w. (c) As the photon flux density   (z) of the fundamental wave decreases, the photon flux density  3 (z) of the second-harmonic wave increases. Since photon numbers are conserved, the sum  1 (z)+2  3 (z)=  1 (0) is a constant.

42 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 42 The efficiency of second-harmonic generation for an interaction region of length L is For large  L (long cell, large input intensity, or large nonlinear parameter), the efficiency approaches one. This signifies that all the input power (at frequency w) has been transformed into power at frequency 2w; all input photons of frequency w are converted into half as many photons of frequency 2w. For small  L (small device length L, small nonlinear parameter d, or small input photon flux density   (0)), the argument of the tanh function is small and therefore the approximation tanhx=x may be used. The efficiency of second- harmonic generation is then

45 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 45 B. Frequency Conversion A frequency up-converter converts a wave of frequency w 1 into a wave of higher frequency w 3 by use of an auxiliary wave at frequency w 2, called the “pump.” A photon from the pump is added to a photon from the input signal to form a photon of the output signal at an up-converted frequency w 3 =w 1 +w 2. The conversion process is governed by the three coupled equations. For simplicity, assume that the three waves are phase matched ( △ k = 0) and that the pump is sufficiently strong so that its amplitude does not change appreciably within the interaction distance of interest.

46 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 46 Figure The frequency up-converter: (a) wave mixing; (b) photon interactions; (c) evolution of the photon flux densities of the input w 1 -wave and the up-converted w 3 - wave. The pump w2-wave is assumed constant Efficiency

47 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 47 C. Parametric Amplification and Oscillation Parametric Amplifiers The parametric amplifier uses three-wave mixing in a nonlinear crystal to provide optical gain. The process is governed by the same three coupled equations with the waves identified as follows: ★ Wave 1 is the “signal” to be amplified. It is incident on the crystal with a small intensity I(0). ★ Wave 3, called the “pump,” is an intense wave that provides power to the amplifier. ★ Wave 2, called the “idler,” is an auxiliary wave created by the interaction process

48 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 48 Figure The parametric amplifier: (a) wave mixing; (b) photon mixing; (c) photon flux densities of the signal and the idler; the pump photon flux density is assumed constant. Parametric Amplifier Gain Coefficient

49 CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS Fundamentals of Photonics 49 Parametric Oscillators A parametric oscillator is constructed by providing feedback at both the signal and the idler frequencies of a parametric amplifier. Energy is supplied by the pump. Figure The parametric oscillator generates light at frequencies w 1 and w 2. A pump of frequency w 3 =w 1 +w 2 serves as the source of energy.
