Demonstration of a Mid-infrared silicon Raman amplifier.


We demonstrate, for the first time, a mid infrared silicon Raman amplifier. Amplification of 12 dB is reported for a signal at 3.39 micron wavelength. The active medium was a 2.5 cm long silicon sample that was pumped with 5ns pulses at 2.88 micron. Such a technology can potentially extend silicon photonics' application beyond data communication in the near… (More)
