Second-harmonic generation in a quasi-phase matched waveguide produced using a domain-disordered GaAs-AlAs superlattice is modeled including the effects of group velocity mismatch, nonlinear refraction, two-photon absorption, and linear loss. The model predicts our experimentally observed second-harmonic powers within an order of magnitude. Self-phase(More)
The optical Kerr effect was measured by observing self-phase modulation in GaAs-AlGaAs superlattice-core waveguides modified by ion-implantation quantum-well intermixing. The band-gap energy was shifted by 68 nm for an implantation dose of 0.5times10<sup>13</sup> cm<sup>-2</sup> and annealing temperature of 775degC. The Kerr effect was suppressed by up to(More)
Continuous wave second-harmonic generation was demonstrated in quasi-phase-matched GaAs/AlGaAs superlattice-core waveguides formed by periodic intermixing. Output second harmonic powers of 950 nW were recorded. Bistability was observed when tuning either the input power or wavelength.
Self-phase modulation was observed in GaAs/AlGaAs superlattice-core waveguides that were quantum well intermixed by ion implantation. The band gap was blue-shifted by 68 nm and the Kerr effect was suppressed by 67% after intermixing.
Simulations show that group-velocity-mismatch and third-order effects reduce second harmonic generation efficiency by 23% and 33%, respectively, in GaAs/AlAs superlattice waveguide. Also, optimal waveguide lengths were found to be longer than the walkoff length.
