With the inception of Quasi-Phase Matching (QPM) technique, there has been a wide interest by the researchers to utilize the concept of domain engineered superlattices structures in optical networking. We present a theoretical approach to study the effect of phase-shifter (PS) domains in engineered optical superlattice structures and analyze the second harmonic spectral response. QPM device with PSs is the easiest approach to generate multiple and tunable second harmonic spectrum to utilize the same in optical communication system.
