Abstract: A generic semi-analytical approach is proposed for the self-consistent analysis of combinatorial frequency generation in stacks of binary nonlinear layers illuminated by a pair of pump waves. It is shown that the quasi-periodic stacks can be treated as the defected periodic structures with the defect located at the specific positions determined by a particular layer sequence. The developed technique combining the Harmonic Balance and Transfer Matrix Methods is illustrated by the cases of periodic and quasi-periodic (Fibonacci and Thue-Morse type) stacks of nonlinear dielectric layers.
