Paper Abstract

It has been shown that doubly resonant microcavities can be used to obtain miniaturized parametric devices leading for example to efficient second-harmonic generation (SHG). First we will briefly recall the basic properties of SHG in III-V semiconductor whispering gallery mode microdisks or microrings. Then we will show theoretically that by coupling such microresonators and by using the artificial dispersion of a side-coupled integrated spaced sequence of resonators (SCISSOR) it is possible to adapt the Fresnel phase-matching technique to the case of highly confining waveguides or to enhance the second order nonlinear properties of a semiconductor waveguide by slowing fundamental and second-harmonic waves.
