Frequency conversion efficiency limiting factors in PPKTP crystals and segmented waveguides have been investigated. It was found that at high intensity, back conversion effects related to the spectral and spatial properties of the laser beam, limit the conversion efficiency. High conversion efficiencies in PPKTP are demonstrated by selecting proper laser conditions. A parametric study of the influence of geometrical parameters on conversion efficiency in periodically segmented waveguides has been carried out and an optimal design parameter range has been defined. An improved waveguide structure in which higher efficiencies can be obtained is suggested.
