We demonstrate simultaneous phase matching of two different nonlinear processes, using a noncollinear
interaction in periodically poled crystal with single grating. The noncollinear scheme provides phase-
matching solutions over continuous regions of the optical spectrum and can be used for multiple-harmonic
generation as well as all-optical effects. We have demonstrated experimentally third-harmonic generation of
a 3 m pump wavelength in a noncollinear configuration using a periodically poled LiNbO3 crystal. We ob-
served, in good agreement with theoretical calculation, very broad spectral and thermal acceptance band-
widths, as well as a relatively narrow angular bandwidth. 2007 Optical Society of America

Quasi phase matching (QPM) by periodic one-
dimensional (1D) modulation of the nonlinear coeffi-
cient makes it possible to phase match a single non-
linear interaction.1
