Abstract

Efficient sum-frequency generation in epitaxial GaAsAlGaAs waveguides is reported. Phase matching is achieved for type II nonlinear interaction using Bragg reflection waveguides. Continuous-wave signal and pump in 1550nm wavelength window were used for upconversion of photons to the 775nm region. For a pump and signal with powers of 0.69mW and 0.35mW, sum-frequency power of 35nW was measured. The normalized conversion efficiency was estimated to be 298%W1cm2 in a device with a length of 2.2mm. The bandwidth of the process was found to exceed 60nm.
