      We study nonlinear frequency generation in media with random ferroelectric domain structure. We show that randomness enables one to realize broadband third harmonic generation via cascading of two second order quasi-phase ...
    • Comparative analysis of ferroelectric domain statistics via nonlinear diffraction in random nonlinear materials

      Article
      Open Access
      We present an indirect, non-destructive optical method for domain statistic characterization in disordered nonlinear crystals having homogeneous refractive index and spatially random distribution of ferroelectric domains. ...
    • Ferroelectric domain engineering by focused infrared femtosecond pulses 

      Chen, Xin; Karpinski, Pawel; Shvedov, Vladlen; Koynov, Kaloian; Wang, Bingxia; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Sheng, Yan (2015-10-05)

      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      We study parametric frequency conversion in quadratic nonlinear media with disordered ferroelectric domains. We demonstrate that disorder allows realizing broadband second- and third-harmonic generation via cascading of ...
    • Second-harmonic generation in disordered quadratic media: role of a ferroelectric domain structure
