Abstract: Bulk silicon possesses no second-order susceptibility (&x03C7;<sup>(2)</sup>), inhibiting second-order nonlinear processes in the emerging silicon photonic platform. Here, we propose a method to overcome this limitation by enabling a third-order (&x03C7;<sup>(3)</sup>) nonlinear mixing scheme between optical waves and an externally applied static electric field inside a silicon waveguide. We show in theory that facilitated by a modal phase-matching scheme efficient second-harmonic generation can be realized under an applied voltage of 65&x00A0;V, giving rise to an equivalent &x03C7;<sup>(2)</sup> &x003D; 4.7 pm&x002F;V. We also show that unlike the classical second-harmonic generation, the wavelengths of phase-matched pump and second-harmonic waves are pump-power dependent due to the &x03C7; <sup>(3)</sup> nature of this process.
