Abstract

We investigated both analytically and numerically the simultaneous influence of higher-harmonic gratings and subharmonic gratings on the threshold for generation of the subharmonic K/2 grating. The higher-harmonic grating causes feedback to the fundamental grating, thus leading to a nonlinear correction in dissipation, and the threshold for subharmonic generation is substantially modified by the presence of more subharmonics. The numerical solution shows that the inclusion of five higher-harmonic components and four subharmonic components are sufficient to cover the entire spatial region. The discrepancy between the analytical and the numerical solution increases with increased electric-field amplitude.
