A1: sorry, no. INTERCONNECT is a circuit/system tool, and it only needs the component's performance parameters. Only the component design solvers, such as FDTD, FDE, varFDTD, EME etc will need the physical properties of the components/devices.


A2: Not sure if some concepts are mixed up:

 gaussian pulses, in my understanding, is the time signal;

" envelope of the following intensity" is the frequency-domain result. It is discrete, piece-wise, so you may extract the envelop using a script or 3rd party tool.

"SPM": do you mean "self phase modulation"?  I think this is nonlinear result, right?
