Integrated optical waveguides based on stoichiometric silicon nitride (SÌ3N4) grown with low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) are of high importance for applications, e.g., in microwave photonics [1] and quantum optics [2] due to their record-low loss and broad spectral transparency range. The material's third-order nonlinearity and wide transparency have enabled efficient nonlinear conversion, specifically, supercontinuum generation with record-wide bandwidth [3, 4] and are promising for all-optical switching [5].
