Electroabsorption Modulator

In this tutorial, we demonstrate optical modulation using an electroabsorbtion modulator. Sample: Electroabsorption Modulator.osch The EA Modulator device is located in the OptoElectric library. It has 2 electrical ports for the bias and RF driving and 2 optical ports as an input and output. The EA modulator is driven with a voltage source device which…

Ring Switch

In this tutorial, we demonstrate a ring switch that adds or drops channels by controlling the index of a ring resonator. Sample: RingSwitch.osch Figure 1: Schematics of Ring Switch The ‘LaserBlck’ is a subcircuit block that contains a circuit for driving laser diode. The laser diode is also connected with a thermal network consisting of…

VCSEL Array

In this tutorial, we demonstrate the simulation of a VCSEL Array circuit that contains an array of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSEL) which exhibits temperature dependent effects. Sample: Vcsel Array.osch Figure 1: Schematics of VCSEL Array This circuit contains an array of eight VCSELs. The top level schematics contain eight subcircuit block representing each…
