Quantum-dot-based integrated non-linear sources


The authors report on the design and the preliminary characterisation of two active non-linear sources in the terahertz and near-infrared range. The former is associated to difference-frequency generation between whispering gallery modes of an AlGaAs microring resonator, whereas the latter is granted by parametric generation in a waveguide via modal phase matching. Both devices rely on embedded quantum-dot lasers, which allow for low-threshold currents and unconventional geometries. They also include specific degrees of freedom that open a practical route towards phase matching, either during the lithographic process or during operation.
