The article focuses on the proposed class of photonic devices based on the application of stress fields in silicon to match with the second-order nonlinear processes with quasi-phase. It recounts that the application of asymmetric stress could break the symmetry, creating a nonzero second-order nonlinear coefficient. Through a periodically poled lithium niobate concept, it depicts that the application of periodically alternating stress fields will let second-order nonlinear processes in silicon.
