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.
Hello Everyone !
I want to know that on Optifdtd, could Long Period grating (LPG) in any optical fiber be created (virtually) and the same can be simulated for transmission and reflectance peaks.
Please answer asap.
The FDTD method is limited to smaller sized domains as it is very computationally intensive. For long period gratings I would suggest OptiGrating.
Ok. I will read more about Optigrating. I have one more question to you Damian – If I have to taper an optical fiber (plastic optical fiber) and use the tapered region for sensing, can it be performed in OptiFTDT ?
Again this depends on the specifics of the design. If the taper is short enough then yes! However, if the taper is over a couple of mm’s then the FDTD method would be unsuitable.
it is of 7-8 mm.
which software could do that ?
If the fiber does not have a grating, it could be simulated with OptiBPM.
Yes Damian, the tapered fiber is separate, the tapering is done on plastic optical fiber.
Grating is not involved in this. An image of taper is attached below. It may be from 7- 13 mm.
