2006 3rd IEEE International Conference on Group IV Photonics, 2006.  
A method to recover power lost to two photon absorption is described. Approach is applicable to both Raman and Kerr based devices. CW Raman amplification with negative electrical power dissipation is experimentally demonstrated in silicon.
