Snake-shaped waveguides for quasi-phase-matched second harmonic generation

Valerio Flavio Gili

Université Paris Diderot

Valerio Flavio Gili (born in Rome the 7/10/1990) went to the University of studies of Rome “La Sapienza”, where he studied Physics and took his bachelor degree in 2012. He received his full-marks Master degree in Physics at the University of studies of Rome in 2014, doing an experimental thesis on quantum optics with Paolo Mataloni and Fabio Sciarrino. He started his PhD in 10/2015 in the Laboratoire Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques at Paris Diderot University, where he is now actively working on nonlinear optics and nanophotonics.


Phase-matched three-wave mixing is possible in optically isotropic zinc-blende materials, thanks to quasi-phase matching occurring when the interacting fields propagate along a curved path about a principal dielectric axis... [ view full abstract ]
