    • Cerenkov third-harmonic generation in chi((2)) nonlinear photonic crystal 

      Sheng, Yan; Wang, Wenjie; Shiloh, Roy; Roppo, Vito; Kong, Y.; Arie, Ady; Krolikowski, W. (2011-06-13)
      Article
      Open Access
      We report on the observation of Čerenkov emission of a third-harmonic frequency in a two-dimensional nonlinear photonic crystal, where the second-order nonlinearity chi((2)) is spatially modulated by the reversal of ...
    • Comparative analysis of ferroelectric domain statistics via nonlinear diffraction in random nonlinear materials 

      Wang, Bin; Switowski, K; Cojocaru, Crina; Roppo, V; Sheng, Yan; Escalora, M.; Kisielewski, J.; Pawlak, D.; Vilaseca Alavedra, Ramon; Akhouayri, H.; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco (2018-01-22)
      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)
      Article
      Open Access
      We demonstrate infrared femtosecond laser-induced inversion of ferroelectric domains. This process can be realised solely by using tightly focused laser pulses without application of any electric field prior to, in conjunction ...
    • Ferroelectric domain patterning with ultrafast light 

      Chen, Xin; Shvedov, Vladlen; Karpinski, Pawel; Koynov, Kaloian; Boes, A.; Mitchell, A.; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Sheng, Yan (2016-12-01)

    • Tailoring Cerenkov second-harmonic generation in bulk nonlinear photonic crystal 

      Sheng, Yan; Roppo, Vito; Kong, Qian; Kalinowski, K.; Wang, Qi; Cojocaru, Crina; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Krolikowski, W. (2011-07-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      We investigate theoretically the Čerenkov-type second-harmonic generation in two-dimensional bulk nonlinear photonic crystal with longitudinal modulation of the χ(2) nonlinearity. We show that in this scheme the Čerenkov ...
    • Theoretical study of Cerenkov-type second-harmonic generation in periodically poled ferroelectric crystals 

      Sheng, Yan; Kong, Qian; Roppo, Vito; Kalinowski, K.; Wang, Qi; Cojocaru, Crina; Krolikowski, W. (2012-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      We study theoretically the Čerenkov-type second-harmonic generation by a Gaussian beam in quadratic nonlinear media with periodically reverted ferroelectric domains. In particular, we consider the role of fundamental ...
    • Two-dimensional domain structures in Lithium Niobate via domain inversion with ultrafast light 

      Chen, Xin; Karpinski, Pawel; Shvedov, Vladlen; Wang, Bingxia; Trull Silvestre, José Francisco; Cojocaru, Crina; Boes, A.; Mitchell, A.; Krolikowski, Wieslaw; Sheng, Yan (2016)
      Article
      Open Access
      Periodic inversion of ferroelectric domains is realized in a lithium niobate crystal by focused femtosecond near-infrared laser beam. One and two-dimensional domain patterns are fabricated. Quasi-phase matched frequency ...
