Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate mid-infrared difference-frequency generation in suspended 181 nm thick GaAs waveguides. Generation of the idler at wavelengths between 2800 and 3150 nm is enabled by form-birefringent phase-matching in ultrahigh index-contrast waveguides. Nonlinear mixing has a measured efficiency of 0.4W1 in a 1.2 mm long waveguide using a CW signal tunable between 1490 and 1620 nm and a CW pump tunable between 1018 and 1032 nm at powers of a few mW.
