We demonstrate dual-wavelength short pulses lasing at 1540 and 1675 nm based on a silicon waveguide. The inline silicon waveguide inside a laser cavity facilitates pulse compression and laser mode-locking due to two-photon absorption (TPA) and TPA-induced free-carrier absorption at 1540 nm. Compressed pulses provide pump for stimulated Raman scattering. Raman amplification and low threshold Raman lasing are observed based on the same silicon waveguide.
