Abstract

We demonstrate an on-chip four-wave mixing (FWM) scheme in a silicon nanowaveguide to scale the bandwidth of a frequency comb generated by phase modulation of continuous-wave (CW) lasers. The FWM process doubles the bandwidth of the initial comb generated by the modulation of a CW laser. For example, a wavelength-tunable frequency comb with >100 comb lines spaced by 10 GHz within a bandwidth of 5 dB is generated.
