Abstract

We present a concept of standing-wave optical frequency conversion in dispersive microcavities theoretically and experimentally, allowing efficient ultracompact nonlinear photonics. We developed a time-dependent model, incorporating the dispersion into the structure of the spatial cavity modes, where the conversion efficiency is enhanced by the optimization of a nonlinear cavity mode overlap. We designed and fabricated integrated double-resonance semiconductor microcavities for standing-wave second-harmonic generation. The measured efficiency exhibits a significant maximum near the cavity resonance owing to the intracavity power enhancement and the dispersion-induced wavelength detuning effect on the mode overlap, in good agreement with our theoretical predictions.
