OptiSPICE 5.3 introduces several enhancements including new models and devices, improvements to the simulator performance & post processing features, and a major visualization update.


In this major release of OptiFDTD we have introduced a new material management interface built into Designer, including automated fitting of user refractive index data to a Lorentz-Drude model. Additional enhancements to both Designer and Analyzer are targeted at providing a streamlined design process, simulation and analysis of complex devices and assisting designers to reach…

Nano Photonic Imager

This example demonstrates the operation of a nanophotonic coherent imager (4 x 4 pixels)

Signal Quality Ratios

When designing or analyzing the performance of an analog or digital link, the following signal metrics are commonly used…

Optical Receiver Analysis (PIN-TIA-LA)

The overall performance of a point-to-point optical communication link is normally defined based on the minimum average optical power, measured at the input to the optical receiver…

Matched Filter Analysis

A matched filter is an ideal filter which acts upon a received signal so as to maximize its signal to noise ratio (SNR). Under conditions of additive white Gaussian noise, the SNR…

Digital Modulation Analysis (PSK)

Digital modulation systems are used to transmit digital (quantized) information over a medium such as air or optical fiber. Transmission is achieved by mapping the information…

MATLAB Data Formats

This application note will describe the Matlab Data Formats that are available within OptiSystem.

Optical Coherent Receiver Sensitivity Analysis

Optical coherent receiver technology can provide theoretical sensitivity levels to the order of 10’s of photons/bit. This application note provides an overview of common coherent receiver architectures…
