Daldosso and L. Pavesi photonics devices, such as IR detectors, Raman amplifiers, etc. 2. Concerning Si-nc, only few works has studied in details this effect. 83 performed optical pump-probe measurements by prismcoupling a probe beam into the waveguide (defined by the Si nanocrystal distribution) and exposing a portion of the guide to a UV pump beam. Induced absorption has been attributed to carrier absorption within the Si-nc. 79 An extensive study of the carrier absorption (CA) mechanism in multilayered Si-nc rib waveguides has been performed at our laboratory.

The photon energy ω and the energy differences between the N-electrons system and the N±1 electrons excited system. This explains why Green’s functions are the main tools for band structure calculations: the excitation energies of a system are obtained by the determination of the poles of G. The Green’s function cannot be calculated exactly for realistic systems. It obeys a Dyson equation of the form G(1, 2) = G0 (1, 2) + d(34)G0 (1, 3)Σ(3, 4)G(4, 2), (10) where G0 is the non-interacting Green’s function and Σ is the self-energy, a non-hermitian, non-local and energy dependent operator.
