Abstract

Silicon core fibers (SCFs) offer an exciting opportunity to harness the nonlinear functionality of the semiconductor material within the excellent waveguiding properties of optical fiber systems. Over the past two decades, these fibers have evolved from a research curiosity into established components for use across a wide range of photonic applications. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the evolution of the SCFs, with a focus on the development of the fabrication and post-processing procedures that have helped unlock the nonlinear optical potential of this new technology. As well as reviewing the timeline of advancements in nonlinear performance, a perspective will be provided on the current challenges and future opportunities for in-fiber nonlinear silicon systems.
