Raman Gain in Silicon Using Highly Confined Waveguide Structure

  • Qianfan Xu (a1), Vilson R. Almeida (a1) and Michal Lipson (a1)

Abstract

We show ultra-fast Raman gain dynamics in submicron-size silicon-on-insulator strip waveguide. Using high confinement structures and pico-second pump pulses, we show 6-dB net nonlinear gain with 20.7-W peak pump power in a 7-mm long waveguide.
