Optimization of Optical Wavelength Conversion in SOI Waveguide
In this paper the wavelength conversion in a 1cm long silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguide has been investigated numerically. The wavelength conversion efficiency is optimized by analyzing free carriers absorption (FCA) loss generated by two-photon-absorption (TPA). The free carriers life time is focused while other factors influencing noise figure are also considered.
