Ultrashort Free-Carrier Lifetime for Low Nonlinear Loss in Silicon Waveguides

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We demonstrate significant reduction of one of the main nonlinear loss mechanisms in silicon waveguides - free carrier absorption. We show reduction of the free-carrier lifetime from 3 ns down to less than 12.2 ps.
