In this paper, the electro-induced birefringence based on Kerr effect and Franz-Keldysh effect in bulk silicon crystal at 1.3μm wavelengths has been measured. By using Kerr effect, the third-order susceptibility tensor of bulk crystalline silicon has been calculated.The two independent tensor of silicon X (3) susceptibility can be obtained by calculation (3) 6.22 (1 2.2%) 10 -20 m2 V2 and Xxyxy(3) = and xxxx(3) 9.13 (1 ±2.2%) 10-20 m2 V 2 = m2/V2. The research can drive the silicon utility in the photo-electricity field.
