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…

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…

VFEM Accuracy and Advantages

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