Optiwave software can be used in different industries and applications, including Fiber Optic Communication, Sensing, Pharma/Bio, Military & Satcom, Test & Measurement, Fundamental Research, Solar Panels, Components / Devices, etc..
OptiSPICE is the first circuit design software for analysis of integrated circuits including interactions of optical and electronic components. It allows for the design and simulation of opto-electronic circuits at the transistor level, from laser drivers to transimpedance amplifiers, optical interconnects and electronic equalizers.
OptiBPM is a comprehensive CAD environment used for the design of complex optical waveguides. Perform guiding, coupling, switching, splitting, multiplexing, and demultiplexing of optical signals in photonic devices.
The optimal design of a given optical communication system depends directly on the choice of fiber parameters. OptiFiber uses numerical mode solvers and other models specialized to fibers for calculating dispersion, losses, birefringence, and PMD.
Emerging as a de facto standard over the last decade, OptiGrating has delivered powerful and user friendly design software for modeling integrated and fiber optic devices that incorporate optical gratings.
I am trying to simulate a bent waveguide. I would like to know dependence of mode losses on the radius of curvature.
so I was putting an ark waveguide and setting Input Field Transverse to Modal. But I get an error message that there is no waveguide (screenshot attached).
Could someone tell the right approach to it.
At the moment, OptiFDTD cannot find modes of bent waveguides.
I can suggest the following:
1) Design a linear waveguide portion in front of your bent waveguide. Launch light from this linear waveguide. This way the mode solver will pick-up the waveguide geometry. The linear waveguide doesn’t have to be long, you just need to ensure that it uses the same profile as your bent waveguide.
2) Design your profile cross-section from OptiMode, solve the modes and export the mode from OptiMode solver. Then go back to OptiFDTD and use the “user-defined” input plane option to load your mode file.
no idea , hopefully someone else can help you
oh Aurelien has given an explanation , good 🙂
