Abstract

We propose and examine single-stack matching-layer enhanced Bragg reflection waveguides (BRWs) as a platform for integrated parametric devices. The proposed designed is asymmetric in geometry, where a multilayer core is surrounded by a single-layer upper cladding and a lower quarter-wave Bragg mirror. The propagation of the Bragg mode in the new design relies on total internal reflection from the upper cladding and Bragg reflection from the lower periodic cladding. Analytical expressions for modal analysis of TE- and TM-polarized Bragg modes are derived. An AlxGa1xAs second-harmonic generation device is theoretically examined to highlight nonlinear performance of the new design, and it is compared to symmetric phase-matched BRWs reported to date. The application of the same structure for generation of anticorrelated photon pairs is discussed.
