Abstract

Second-harmonic generation is investigated in lithium niobate channels realized by proton exchange and quasi-phase matched by surface periodic poling. The reduction in conversion efficiency at high powers is interpreted in terms of multiphoton absorption via two-color terms, yielding an estimate of the dominating three-photon process.
