Paper Abstract

We demonstrate femtosecond pulses evolution in silicon photonic nano-wire waveguides with generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation modeling along with auxiliary carrier dynamics. The temporal and spectral properties of the output pulses are simulated with increasing input pulse energies, and high-order soliton pulse compression and splitting, along with spectral broadening and red-shift are observed remarkably. The impacts of high-order nonlinear effects, including the self-steepening and intrapulse Raman scattering on the pulse evolution are analyzed, and it indicates that the IRC results in noticeable temporal tailing edge tilting and spectral red-shift, while the impact of the self-steeping can be negligible. The contributions of the third order dispersion and various nonlinear effects on the pulse properties are detailedly investigated to better understand the femtosecond pulses propagation, in support of further chip-scale optical interconnects and signal processing.
