Silicon photonics is being considered as the future photonic platform for low power consumption optical communications. However, silicon is a centrosymmetric crystal, i.e. silicon doesn't have Pockels effect. Nevertheless, breaking the crystal symmetry of silicon can be used to overcome this limitation. In this work, the crystal modification is achieved by depositing a SiN high-stress overlayer. Recent results on high-speed measurements will be presented and discussed. Both charge effects and Pockels effect induced under an electric field will be also analyzed.
