Nonlinear optical effects for frequency conversion require a phase-matching condition to efficiently generate a coherent field at the new wavelength. We find that the phase-matching condition can be replaced by a resonance condition when the nonlinear effect takes place in a waveguide directional coupler. We have previously reported this novel resonance phenomenon when the effect of second-harmonic generation occurs in waveguide directional couplers. In this paper, we present our detailed theory. An example of the design of such waveguide directional coupler is presented.
