Abstract

Nonlinear arrays fabricated from an AlGaAs waveguide were characterized using a 150 fs synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator (OPO) at a wavelength of 1.53 μm. The laser was end-fire coupled into the wavelength using a 40X microscope objective and imaged onto a camera and power meter. An array consisting of 42 waveguides was also studied. It was observed that while at low powers light remained primarily near the central guide, at higher powers it spread among more waveguides.
