Abstract

We analyze optical parametric interactions in nonlinear magneto-optical media simultaneously possessing a second-order nonlinearity and a spatial modulation of its linear optical properties. An analytic solution for the conversion efficiency of energy transfer from an optical pump to a signal wave is presented, and we discuss the possibility of tunability that is added to the parametric process.
