A new method for measuring waveguide propagation loss in silicon nanowires is presented. This method, based on the interplay between traveling ring modes and standing wave modes due to back-scattering from edge roughness, is accurate and can be used for on wafer measurement of test structures. Examples of loss measurements and fitting are reported.
