Abstract

We explore the thermal nonlinearity in hydrogenated amorphous silicon microcylindrical resonators that are fabricated from the silicon optical fiber platform. In particular, we use a pump/probe technique to experimentally determine the thermal response time from which we can infer the material absorption coefficient.
