Energy exchange between two orthogonally polarized waves by cascading of two quasi-phase-matched quadratic processes

Johnston, Benjamin F; Dekker, Peter; Saltiel, Solomon; Kivshar, Yuri; Withford, Michael


We demonstrate energy exchange between two orthogonally polarized optical waves as a consequence of a two-color multistep parametric interaction. The energy exchange results from cascading of two quasi-phase-matched (QPM) second-harmonic parametric processes, and it is intrinsically instantaneous. The effect is observed when both the type-I (ooe) second-harmonic generation process and higher QPM order type-0 (eee) second-harmonic generation processes are phase-matched simultaneously in a...[Show more]
