Paper Abstract

A new Two-Beam-Propagation Method algorithm for simulation of Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) process in planar optical waveguides is presented. The model accounts for an evolution of two beams propagating simultaneously: the fundamental and the second-harmonic one. Physically, the model consists of a separation of the propagation step and the nonlinear phase and amplitude compensation step. Mathematical formulation of the model is reported and some of its special features are discussed. The method can be easily generalized to investigated SHG processes in optical guides made from media with gain and/or loss. Also other nonlinear wave interactions such as self-phase modulation and cross-phase modulation can be dealt with using the method.
