Abstract

We suggest an application of pump-degenerate four-wave mixing process in tapered waveguides for generation of ultrashort pulses with central frequency tunable over the material transparency range. Our method can produce strongly compressed frequency-converted pulses in presence of group-velocity mismatch and group-velocity dispersion. Additionally, the proposed technique does not require pulse phase synchronization and effectively operates for strongly chirped pump pulses, thus enabling the use of longer nonlinear media for high conversion efficiency.
