Abstract

In this work, we modelled the nonlinear effects in silicon waveguides which are crucial for many applications, including all-optical signal processing, switching, wavelength conversion. I have developed the model for ultrafast all-optical switching using split-step Fourier method and calculated the nonlinear phase shift due to the Kerr effect and including the nonlinear losses (i.e. two-photon absorption, free carrier absorption and free carrier index).
