Paper Abstract

We demonstrate phase-matched frequency-doubling in Langmuir-Blodgett film waveguides of 2-docosylamino-5-nitropyridine (DCANP). Using the Cerenkov-type configuration we can generate light in the absorption region of DCANP (at least down to 410 nm). The largest nonlinear optical coefficient d33 could be used by exciting TE modes propagating in the film. Coupling of the fundamental beam into the waveguide is demonstrated by means of gratings and prisms.
