Abstract

Stimulated emission from sensitized erbium ions in silicon-rich silicon nitride is demonstrated by pump–probe measurements carried out in waveguides. A decrease in the photoinduced absorption of the probe at the wavelength of erbium emission is observed and is attributed to stimulated emission from erbium excited indirectly via localized states in the silicon nitride matrix.
