Abstract

We demonstrate four-wave mixing in silicon-on-insulator coupled-resonator optical waveguides consisting of 35 and 65 microring resonators, using a cw pump with coupled power below 20 mW and observed parametric conversion across more than 10 THz . The conversion efficiency is enhanced by + 16 dB relative to a silicon straight waveguide of equivalent length, due to the slowing factor of the coupled-resonator structure.
