Title: Efficient second-harmonic generation in a double-quantum-well structure

Abstract

Second-harmonic generation in a double-quantum-well nanostructure is analyzed. Optimization of the structure design from the viewpoint of attaining the highest intensity of the second-harmonic wave at the output is considered. Relationships between the quantum-well parameters in a structure satisfying the double-resonance condition are established. The dependence of the optical characteristics of the system on the quantum-well parameters is studied and the problem of optimization of the second-harmonic intensity is solved. It is demonstrated that the highest conversion efficiency is attained under the conditions where the second-harmonic generation coefficient is maximum.
