Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical materials play a key role in the development of coherent sources of radiation as they permit the frequency conversion of mature solid-state lasers into spectral ranges where lasers do not exist or perform poorly. The availability of efficient Quasi-Phase-Matched infrared materials is thus considered as important for the development of several defense optronics applications. This paper will review the progress we achieved so far with periodically oriented Gallium Arsenide.
