Novel nonlinear photonic functionalities in silicon nanowires

Abstract

We discuss two novel nonlinear photonic functionalities of silicon nanowire waveguides. First, we address the Raman gain non-reciprocity that results from the tight light confinement in these waveguide structures, and investigate what consequences this non-reciprocal effect has for Raman lasing in silicon nanowire rings. Secondly, we show that when using… (More)
