Abstract

We numerically demonstrate the use of waveguide dispersion to shift the zero-dispersion wavelength of an As2S3 waveguide to telecom wavelengths. The device implications for parametric gain and wavelength-conversion via four-wave mixing are investigated, giving an operating bandwidth of 550 nm. We also show that the photosensitivity of chalcogenide can be used for post-fabrication tuning of waveguide dispersion characteristics.
