Component Design

NEW VERSION OptiFDTD 14.0

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…

Grating Coupler Design based on SOI Technology

Grating couplers are widely used input/output devices that couple light between fiber (or free-space) and sub-micrometer waveguides. This application note…

Symmetric Lossless X Coupler

The X Coupler is a basic component used in many kinds of optical circuits. Here its properties are analysed by theoretical means, and also by detailed simulation of…

Silicon Nanotapers for Fiber-to-Waveguide Coupling

Two approaches for coupling light on a high-confinement chip with sub-micron waveguides are gratings or taper couplers. This application example…

Plasmonic Waveguide Filters with Nanodisk Resonators

Surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) are waves trapped on the surfaces of metals owing to the interaction between the free electrons in a metal and…

Power Combiner

Optical power in two or more waveguides can be combined onto a single waveguide…

VFEM Accuracy and Advantages

As optical systems move towards an integrated platform, the modelling of high refractive index contrast, sub-wavelength dimension…
