|Abstract||In this invited paper, we first address the differences between the uses of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) as light generating mechanism in Raman devices and as optical analysis tool in spectroscopy. Next, with respect to the light generating functionality of CARS, we briefly review the latest progress on CARS-based Raman wavelength converters in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology and explain a new approach for boosting the efficiency of these converters. Finally, we show that the CARS process is also able to extract heat from a Raman-active medium and that therefore CARS can be used for reducing the heat dissipation in SOI-based Raman lasers.|
