Nanophotonics is a rapidly evolving field, exploring behaviour of light on the micro/nano scale and the interaction of micro/nano objects with light. The driving force for its development is the promise to go far beyond the conventional boundaries of photonics. Because of the diffraction limit, high-density regular optical components do not have the ability to confine light down to the microscale dimension. The footprint of devices becomes more critical for applications with limited physical space, such as on-chip silicon-based photonic devices.In this paper, a review of some of the most significant accomplishments in the field of stimulated Raman scattering in microstructures is reported. These findings indicate promising perspectives for integrated Raman lasers.
