摘要: To achieve high bit rate signal processing in the integrated optical system, the ultrafast all optical modulator is regarded as the key element in the modern optical communication system. Up to date, number of material systems, such as Si, SiO, SiN and so on, have been chosen for nonlinear optical processing in waveguide photonics fields. However, the physical limitation on application is on the inevitable linear or nonlinear absorption performance. Recently, a low-loss and high-Q Ta2O5 based micro-ring resonator is developed and presented. The micro-ring resonator and channel waveguide with core area of the 700 by 400 nm2 were fabricated on amorphous Ta2O5 thin films prepared by reactive sputtering with Q as high as 2x105. Meanwhile, the nonlinear refractive index of Ta2O5 waveguide at 1550 nm as high as 4 × 10−14 cm2∕W was also reported. In this work, the progress of nonlinear optical properties of low loss waveguide based on Tantalum Pentoxide (Ta2O5) will be introduced. The anomalous dispersion Ta2O5 based waveguide was designed and fabricated for super-continuum generation(SCG) due to its nature of two photon absorption free and high optical nonlinearity. The measurements show that SCG ranging from 585 to 1697 nm (at -30 dB) is obtained at a pumping wavelength of 1056 nm and the spectrum broadens at least 1.5 octaves. The pumping power of the aforementioned spanning result is 396 W, much lower than other materials for achieving the same SCG result that had been reported. In addition, the SCG from high order mode waveguide will be discussed as well.
