Abstract

We describe time domain characterizations of dynamic four-wave mixing in a low loss modified W1 GaInP photonic crystal waveguide. Using 32ps wide pump pulses with peak powers of up to 1.1W we achieved a very large conversion efficiency of 6.8dB as well as a 1.3dB parametric gain experienced by a weak CW probe signal. Time domain simulations confirm quantitatively all the measured results.
