Modeling of quasi-phase-matched cavity-enhanced second-harmonic generation
We propose a mean-field model to describe second-harmonic generation in a resonator made of a material with zinc-blende crystalline structure. The model is obtained through an averaging of the propagation equations and boundary conditions. It considers the phase-mismatched terms, which act as an effective Kerr effect. We analyze the impact of the different terms on the steady state solutions, highlighting the competition between nonlinearities.
