We demonstrate electrical tuning of phase mismatch in silicon wavelength converters. Active control of birefringence induced by a thin-film piezoelectric transducer integrated on top of the waveguides is used for dispersion engineering. The technology provides a solution for compensating the phase mismatch caused by fabrication errors in integrated waveguides. It also offers a mean to dynamically control the relative dispersion between interacting waves and hence, to introduce electronic control of optical parametric processes.
