45 degree turning mirror
I downloaded both OptiBPM & OptiFDTD recently, to model integrated optic passives (RR, coupler, etc). Most of the passives have been described in BPM & FDTD tutorials so that’s been very helpful. However, the simple 45 degree out-of-plane turning mirror was not included. By that, I mean a waveguide cut at 45 degrees and turn either into the substrate or outside. I have construct a model in FDTD, and it seems to work. My question is can this be done in BPM? I have a pretty large overall geometry and FDTD is not a viable option. Or rather, should I create blocks (turning structure, WG, RR, etc), and use OptiSystem to connect them together?
