Efficient third harmonic generation in photonic nanowires

Efficient third harmonic generation in photonic nanowires

In this paper we analyse third harmonic generation analytically and present the criteria for optimal harmonic generation.

Abstract

In a photonic nanowire the strong optical confinement allows for the phase matching of nonlinear interactions that would not normally be phase matched, while the large longitudinal component of the electric field serves to further enhance the effective nonlinearity. Thus such waveguides are good choices for studying nonlinear effects such as third harmonic generation. In this paper we analyse third harmonic generation analytically and present the criteria for optimal harmonic generation. In addition we analyse the inverse process of 1/3 harmonic generation and show that efficient parametric amplifiers can be made which would be a high brightness source of entangled photons for producing GHZ states.
