Abstract:

The efficiency of second-harmonic generation SHG induced by an externally applied periodic DC electric field was investigated. A finite element method was used to find the static electric field due to different interdigitated electrode structure. The resulting fields were used to calculate the overlap integrals which determine the SHG efficiency in an optical waveguide. The results show that there are reasonable difference in SHG efficiencies for the structures investigated. Author
