We report the demonstration of 11dB fiber-to-fiber optical gain in a silicon Raman amplifier. Pulsed pumping is employed to reduce the TPA induced free carrier losses resulting in net signal amplification. The influence of free carriers is elucidated by observing the dependence of gain on pulse energy.
