Terahertz sideband generation is demonstrated by using the nonlinear intracavity interaction between far-infrared and near-infrared modes in a GaAs waveguide. A low power near-infrared beam at 1.32 μm is coupled into a quantum cascade laser operating at 104 μm (2.9 THz), which acts as both the THz source and the nonlinear medium. The conversion efficiency of the resulting sidebands is found to be approximately 4.5×10-6.
