Silicon photonics provides a method for creating optical circuits using silicon and electronics manufacturing techniques. One important component is the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI). In this paper we propose determining the group index group index of manufactured MZI by measuring the Free Spectral Range (FSR) and calculating the group index
