Abstract
A silicon film sandwiched between a sapphire substrate and a silver layer is used as a nonlinear optical waveguide. The geometrical characteristics of the film and grating coupler have been optimized. This device has been studied in the nonlinear regime using nanosecond and picosecond exciting pulses. Very fast switchings are obtained which can be explained theoretically.
