Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate enhanced wavelength conversion in a Q7500 deeply etched AlGaAs-nanowaveguide microresonator via degenerate continuous-wave four-wave mixing with a pump power of 24 mW. The maximum conversion efficiency is 43dB and accounts for 12 dB enhancement compared to that of a straight nanowaveguide. The experimental results and theoretical predictions agree very well and show optimized conversion efficiency of 15dB. This work represents a step toward realizing a fully integrated optical devices for generating new optical frequencies.
