Nonlinear-optic (NLO) effects provide many device functions such as wavelength conversion and signal processing. The use of waveguides allows the implementation of efficient and compact devices. This book presents a systematic description of this area with an emphasis on devices that use ferroelectric waveguides. The earlier chapters give an introduction on the concepts of waveguides, NLO devices, coupled-mode formalism- and phase matching. Then, various NLO interactions and the related characteristics are elucidated. The fabrication of waveguides and structures for quasi-phase matching are then discussed. The text progresses to a survey of device implementations and applications. Short-wavelength-generation devices, wavelength converters for WDM photonic networks, optical parametric amplifiers, and ultrafast signal processing devices are discussed, including the most recent experimental results.Review:
