  • Patent number: 6842565
    Abstract: An optical modulation/multiplexing circuit can fabricate a plurality of nonlinear optical waveguide devices and silica optical waveguides through a small number of processes, and achieve the simplification of the fabrication process and stabilization of the operation by hybrid integration with reduced connection loss. It employs lithium niobate domain inversion optical waveguides as nonlinear optical switches, and implements functions necessary for modulation and multiplexing such as input, splitting, multiplexing and timing adjustment of optical modulation signals and an optical clock signal by connecting glass waveguides to the input and output terminals of the domain inversion optical waveguides. Nonlinear optical media generate a second harmonic light beam of the optical clock signal, and at the same time produces a light beam with a frequency corresponding to the difference frequency of the two high frequency signals, the second harmonic light beam and the signal pulses.

  • Patent number: 6720548
    Abstract: A nonlinear optical crystal is composed of 2-adamantyl-5-nitorpyridine (AANP) allowing the type 2 phase matching to the sampling light and a measuring object light, emitting a sum frequency light of the measuring object light and the sampling light, with the polarization directions thereof being perpendicular to each other, when the sampling light and measuring object light multiplexed by a multiplexer are entered. When the sum frequency light is emitted through the nonlinear optical crystal, a control portion controls the polarization direction of the sampling light so as to be parallel to a predetermined reference axis located within a plane perpendicular to a phase matching direction of the nonlinear optical crystal. The predetermined reference axis is a single axis maintaining parallelism with the crystal axis of the nonlinear optical crystal even if the wavelength of the inputted light is changed.
