An optical-frequency conversion device is fabricated, using monolithically integrated distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) mirrors with different coupling coefficients at the outer sides of the active and the saturable absorber regions. The input-end DBR mirror has higher coupling coefficient than that of the output-end DBR mirror. The converted light is reflected by the input-end DBR mirror and is emitted only from the output end of the device. This device successfully performs optical frequency conversion when the input TM-polarized light.
