Paper Abstract

The coupled-mode equations are derived to describe the dynamics of coupling between the pump mode and Stokes mode for stimulated Raman scattering in designed high-Q/Vm silicon photonic band gap nanocavities. The interplay of other Χ(3) effects such as two-photon absorption and optical Kerr, related free-carrier dynamics, thermal effects, as well as linear losses such as cavity radiation and linear material absorption are also included. The numerical results demonstrate both the lasing thresholds and the pulsed Raman frequency conversion in monolithic silicon high-Q/Vm photonic band gap nanocavity lasers.
