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.

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
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.

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
Part 0： Comparison
Nonlinear optics:
★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.

The relation between P and E is approximately linear for small E, deviating

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
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.

The component PNL(0) corresponds to a steady (non-time-varying)
polarization density that creates a dc potential difference across the plates
of a capacitor within which the nonlinear material is placed.

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
Figure 9.2-5 An example of frequency conversion in a nonlinear crystal

Although the incident pair of waves at frequencies w1 and w2 produce
polarization densities at frequencies 0, 2wl, 2w2, wl+w2, and w1-w2, all of
these waves are not necessarily generated, since certain additional
conditions (phase matching) must be satisfied, as explained presently.

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
★same direction: nw3/c0=nw1/c0+ nw2/c0,
w3=w1+w2
frequency matching ensures phase matching.
★different refractive indices, nl, n2, and n3:
n3w3/c0=n1w1/c0+n2w2/c0
n3w3=n1w1+n2w2
The phase-matching condition is then independent of the
frequency-matching condition w3=w1+w2; 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.

27
CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
Three- Wave Mixing
We assume that only the component at the sum frequency w3=w1+w2 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=w3-w1.
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.

parametric interaction

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
parametric interaction
◆Waves 1 and 2 are mixed in an up-converter, generating a wave
at a higher frequency w 3=w1+w2. A down-converter is realized by
an interaction between waves 3 and 1 to generate wave 2, at the
difference frequency w 2=w3-w1.
◆ 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.

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
Two-wave mixing can occur only in the degenerate case, w 2=2w1,
in which the second-harmonic of wave 1 contributes to wave 2;
and the subharmonic w2/2 of wave 2, which is at the frequency
difference w2-w1, 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.

As the photon flux density 1(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.

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 1(0)), the argument of the tanh function is small and
therefore the approximation tanhx=x may be used. The efficiency of secondharmonic generation is then

CHAPTER 8----NONLINEAT OPTICS
B. Frequency Conversion
A frequency up-converter converts a wave of frequency w1 into a wave of
higher frequency w3 by use of an auxiliary wave at frequency w2, called the
“pump.” A photon from the pump 2 is added to a photon 1 from the input
signal to form a photon 3 of the output signal at an up-converted frequency
w3=w1+w2.
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.

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

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 9.4-5 The parametric oscillator generates light at frequencies w1
and w2. A pump of frequency w3=w1+w2 serves as the source of energy.
