Hello Talimu,nI think this is a good approximation, as the modes will be more sensitive to the material properties of the guiding core, and the temperature dependent properties of Si would be quite a bit more sensitive then the SiO2.nIf you wanted to be as accurate as possible you could certainly include the temperature effects from SiO2. You would need to create an index perturbation material for silica as well.nnBest,
