Abstract: Based on the QPM structure and the coupled-mode theory, the maximum SHG conversion efficiency of QPM-SHG waveguides in LiTaO3 substrates is analyzed by optimizing the mode confinement and the mode overlap factors. For TM00(ω)-to-TM00(2ω) conversion with a non-square shaped domain inversion QPM structure, the mode confinement and mode overlap factor are dependent not only on the optical field distribution for the fundamental and the SH waves in the waveguide, but also on the domain inversion shape. With the assumption that the refractive index profile of an annealed, proton exchanged LiTaO3 channel waveguide is an exponential decay function in the depth direction, and a Gaussian function in the width direction, the analytical expression of the optical field distribution for the lowest order mode can be obtained. By considering both a non-Gaussian field distribution and a non-square shaped domain inversion structure, the theoretical values for achieving the optimal QPM-SHG waveguide structure are determined.
