AbstractWe experimentally observed a possibly enhanced self-phase modulation (SPM) in silicon suspended membrane waveguides (SMWs) by measuring the spectral broadening of optical pulses. The nonlinear coefficient n 2 and the two-photon absorption coefficient β 2 of silicon SMWs were measured to be (4.6 ±0.9) ×10-18 m2 W-1 and 0.46 cm GW-1 at 1555 nm wavelength. We also proposed a method of using SPM-induced spectral broadening to obtain the coupling loss of a single grating coupler and experimentally compared the spectra of two grating couplers in silicon SMWs and in silicon-on-insulator waveguides.
