Abstract

Optical frequency conversion has applications ranging from tunable light sources to telecommunications band interfaces for quantum information science. Here, we demonstrate efficient, low-noise frequency conversion on a nanophotonic chip through four-wave-mixing Bragg scattering in compact (footprint 60 % for the last two processes, a signal conversion bandwidth > 1 GHz,
