We introduce graphene–silicon hybrid nonlinear devices operating at a few femtojoule cavity circulating energies, including: (1) dualand single-cavity optical bistability; (2) detailed and broadband switching dynamics, and (3) free-carrier and thermal effects in regenerative oscillations. Sub-wavelength nanostructures confine light in a single mode silicon… CONTINUE READING
