Towards nonlinear conversion from mid- to near-infrared wavelengths using Silicon Germanium waveguides

Towards nonlinear conversion from mid- to near-infrared wavelengths using Silicon Germanium waveguides
Towards nonlinear conversion from mid- to near-infrared wavelengths using Silicon Germanium waveguides
We demonstrate the design, fabrication and characterization of a highly nonlinear graded-index SiGe waveguide for the conversion of mid-infrared signals to the near-infrared. Using phase-matched four-wave mixing, we report the conversion of a signal at 2.65 µm to 1.77 µm using a pump at 2.12 µm.

Abstract

We demonstrate the design, fabrication and characterization of a highly nonlinear graded-index SiGe waveguide for the conversion of mid-infrared signals to the near-infrared. Using phase-matched four-wave mixing, we report the conversion of a signal at 2.65 µm to 1.77 µm using a pump at 2.12 µm.
