Abstract

We report on the dispersion of the third-order nonlinear susceptibility ( χ ( 3 ) or “Chi 3”) in planar Ta 2 O 5 waveguides in the telecommunications spectral window. We utilize the observation of third-harmonic generation under ultrashort pulsed excitation as a reference-free characterization method of χ ( 3 ) and obtain a large nonlinear coefficient, 2 × 10 13 esu , at 1550 nm . Our observation of efficient third-harmonic generation in Ta 2 O 5 waveguides in the telecoms window reveals the potential of this material system in high-speed integrated nonlinear optical switches.
