On-chip ultraviolet second-harmonic generation in lithium-tantalate thin film microdisk
The compact and reliable ultraviolet (UV) source has attracted remarkable attention for its potential use in optical measurement systems, high-density optical storage, and biomedical applications. We demonstrate ultraviolet generation by frequency doubling in a lithium-tantalate-on-insulator (LTOI) microdisk via modal phase matching. The 50-µm-diameter microdisk was milled by a focused ion beam (FIB) and followed by chemo-mechanical polishing (CMP) to smooth the disk surface and edge, and the Q-factor reaches
in the visible band. On-chip UV coherent light with a wavelength of 384.3 nm was achieved, which shows great promise for using LTOIs in integrated ultraviolet source platforms.
