Conversion of digital- and analog-modulated optical signals from the 1550 nm band to the 1300 nm band is demonstrated in silicon waveguides. The conversion is based on parametric Stokes to anti-Stokes coupling using the Raman susceptibility of silicon.

    Silicon blistering was achieved at unprecedently low ion fluences of 2×1015 He/cm2 (8 keV) followed by 6×1015 H/cm2 (5 keV), but no blistering occurs for reversed order (H+He), or (He+D) coimplantation up to a high fluence. Raman scattering data suggest that: (i) the He synergy is due to...

    The effect of Si-nanocrystal (Si-nc) size distribution on Raman spectrum is studied in detail within the framework of a phonon confinement model. It is found that size distribution has little effect on Raman frequency shift, but greatly affects the width and shape of Raman spectrum. Si-nc Raman...
