ZeroExistenZ writes: Researchers from Intel Corporation and the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) have built the world's first electrically powered Hybrid Silicon Laser using standard silicon manufacturing processes. This breakthrough addresses one of the last major barriers to producing low-cost, high-bandwidth silicon photonics devices for use inside and around future computers and data centers.

There's a small clip available where they explain how the raman effect is used to generate the laser. A whitepaper on the continious silicon laser is available here, the paper on the modulation can be found here
