Paper Abstract

We propose a general routine, Genetic-Simulated Annealing method (GSA) for the optimal design of quasi-phase matched (QPM) non-uniform grating. Here this method is applied to the design of the flat broadened wavelength conversion bandwidth of 40-mm aperiodically poled lithium niobate (APLN) based on difference-frequency generation (DFG). The flat conversion bandwidth of APLN is broadened from the original 65nm in a 40-mm periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN) to the pre-designated 130 nm in a 40-mm APLN, which conversion efficiency is 6.7 dB higher than that of 12.4-mm PPLN under the same conversion bandwidth.
