Abstract

We propose a novel scheme for generation of mid-infrared radiation in nonlinear waveguides with high absorption in that wavelength range. Coupling the absorbing nonlinear waveguide to a linear waveguide with low absorption allows the mid-infrared radiation to escape before absorption sets in, thus enhancing the frequency-conversion efficiency by as much as an order of magnitude.
