Abstract (40-Word Limit): The chirp of a fast silicon optical modulator is characterized in this paper. Two diagnostic methods, frequency resolved optical gating and optical modulation analysis, are employed respectively. We demonstrate that the outputs of silicon optical modulators have very small intrinsic chirps across the modulated pulses.
