Paper Abstract

A very large second-order susceptibility (Chi) (2)(2(omega) ), responsible for frequency doubling, is obtained for interband transitions at near-infrared wavelengths in a step-like asymmetric quantum well based on GaSb-InAsSb compounds. The structure is engineered so as to achieve a double energy resonance between the electron and hole states and to maximize all relevant dipole matrix elements. The optimized structure has (Chi) (2)(2(omega) ) approximately equals 9 X 10-9 m/V at a pump wavelength of 1.5 micrometers , with an enhancement of about 30 times with respect to the second-order susceptibility of bulk GaAs.
