Conformal Mapping Regions

Conformal Mapping Regions Introduction

Conformal mapping region in BPM is used to simulate curved optical waveguides. The method uses conformal mapping in the complex plane to transform a curved waveguide in ( x, y )  coordinates into a straight waveguide with a modified refractive index in new ( u, v ) coordinates (Figure 1). It can be used to treat…
