In this chapter, nonlinear optical propagation of ultrafast pulses in silicon-on-insulator rib waveguides is theoretically investigated. Two photon absorption, free carrier dispersion, self and cross phase modulation induced by Kerr effect, walk-off, group velocity dispersion, thirdorder dispersion, self-steeping and polarization coupling are taken into account by a very general modeling under sub-picosecond regime. Pulse compression as induced by the soliton generation is presented and discussed.
