Paper Abstract

We propose a method to control the polarization and magnitude of light by introducing another pump wave (control-light) in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). Cascaded polarization coupling and second harmonic generation (SHG) in a single PPLN are described by the wave-coupling equations. The numerical simulations show that the control-light wave breaks the original energy coupling behavior among three waves. The results indicate that the output can be fine tuned by the phase and intensity of the control-light.
