Self Phase Modulation

      Hello, 

      It's been a while now that I am trying to use Lumerical to see SPM (self phase modulation). Can someone please guide me if they've ever used FDTD in Lumerical to see SPM? 

      I'm using a waveguide with Kerr nonlinearity to simulate. But no luck, any help with be highly appreciated. 

      I kept the waveguide length small (50 microns) and the value of instensity and chi3 are high so that I can get the desired nonlinear phase to see SPM. 

      Thanks

      Please make sure the Kerr model you used is correct, as Lumerical has different material models: https://optics.ansys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034394734

      You can estimate how long the waveguide should be in order to show such physics.  You can also extract some parameters and see if they change w/o the nonlinearity.
