AB - Silicon-based plasmonic waveguides show high confinementwell beyond the diffraction limit. Various deviceshave been demonstrated to outperform their dielectriccounterparts at micrometre scales, such as linearmodulators, capable of generating high field confinementand improving device efficiency by increasingaccess to nonlinear processes, limited by ohmiclosses. By using hybridised plasmonic waveguide architecturesand nonlinear materials, silicon-based plasmonicwaveguides can generate strong nonlinear effectsover just a few wavelengths. We have theoreticallyinvestigated the nonlinear optical performance of twohybrid plasmonic waveguides (HPWG) with three differentnonlinear materials. Based on this analysis, thehybrid gap plasmon waveguide (HGPW), combinedwith the DDMEBT nonlinear polymer, shows a fourwavemixing (FWM) conversion efficiency of 16.4dBover a 1mm propagation length, demonstrating that plasmonicwaveguides can be competitive with standardsilicon photonics structures over distances three ordersof magnitude shorter.
