Abstract
Based on an analogy between the macroscopic phenomena and quantum physics, we study the problem of energy conversion for the sum frequency generation (SFG) process in a linear chirped quasi-phase-matched (QPM) crystal. We show that the process of energy conversion from the signal to the sum frequency field is very similar to the process of Landau-Zener tunneling (LZT) in a two-level system. Therefore, the energy conversion mechanism of SFG process can be explained by the theory of LZT. In addition, we obtain the asymptotic and analytical solution of the sum frequency field by solving the coupled equations with the model of Landau-Zener.
