Abstract

We propose a novel optical parametric amplification scheme that combines quasi-phase-matching with a composite pulse approach that involves crystal segments of specific lengths. The presented scheme highly increases the robustness of the frequency conversion against variations of the nonlinear coupling and of the pump, idler, or signal wavelengths, and has therefore the potential to enhance high amplification and broadband operation. Simulation examples applied to LiNbO 3 are given.
