An all-optical AND gate based on Raman effect in silicon-on-insulator technology is proposed. Stimulated Raman scattering, two photon absorption, free carrier dispersion, self and cross phase modulation induced by Kerr effect, walk-off and pump depletion are included in the complete mathematical model, avoiding any a priori-assumption. Finally, the design criteria to optimize the device performance are presented.
