A slab-waveguide-based configuration for efficient frequency conversion is proposed. In the proposed structure, frequency conversion is induced through cascaded multistep nonreciprocal interband photonic transitions activated by external refractive-index modulations. The advantages of interband photonic transition over intraband photonic transition for frequency conversion are analyzed with the coupled-mode theory.
