  • Circuit design using a feedback loop

    Power Control Design

    OptiSPICE is the only SPICE software available for Opto-Electronics. It incorporates equations governing optical components directly into an electrical simulation framework, thus forming a single-engine optoelectronic simulation tool. Previously, the ability for a single software package to tightly model optical-electrical integration, thermal coupling, and various optical effects…

  • Suface Plasmon

    Surface Plasmon

    Surface plasmons are waves that propagate along the surface of metallic and certain dielectric materials. The electric field of a plasmon wave reaches its maximum at the surface and decays evanescently away from the surface. The wave properties are highly sensitive to any changes in the refractive index of the material as well as the device’s geometry. As a full wave modeling method…

  • FDTD - Diffraction Grating 3D Layouts

    Diffraction Grating

    Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) is a powerful numerical method for simulating diffraction gratings, where the grating element and working wavelength are close in size. With OptiFDTD, the incident wave can be versatile and best matched with the real application; the CAD tools enable us to design different types of grating layouts; the simulated near field pattern…
