Abstract : We have proposed a class of nonlinear optical devices based on (cascaded second-order nonlinearities, in particular, optical parametric oscillators and amplifiers, optical frequency shifters, and frequency doublers, in novel configurations. We have developed a microscopic theory for cascading optical nonlinearities and studied influence of the ionized impurities on the tunneling rates in quantum wells. We have set up a state-of-the-art nonlinear optics lab. We have systematically investigated spatially-localized band-gap renormalization and band-filling effects, photoluminescence saturation due to interface traps, and tunneling of heavy holes. We have designed and grown two optimized multilayer structures for implementing optical parametric oscillators and amplifiers, and efficient frequency doublers.
