Abstract

We propose terahertz wave generation using a parametric oscillator based on phase-matched and non-phase-matched degenerate four-wave mixing processes within a silicon nitride Fabry–Perot microcavity. The central frequency of the generated terahertz waves would be tunable over the frequency range of 3.6–5.73 THz by varying the wavelength of the pump wave. The best phase-matching condition is achieved at a frequency of 5 THz, and an optimum peak power of 329 W is obtained at a frequency of 4.29 THz.
