Question:

I want to simulate the transparency of a photonic crystal fiber. For example, I am trying to design a fiber so that there is a small range of wavelengths that will be able to propagate. Is this an OptiFDTD application?

      Answer:

      OptiFDTD is, as you suggested, the most suitable software for this purpose. You can define a small section of fiber within the software and calculate the transmission and reflection spectra. You can then define geometrical parameters in your design and perform parameter sweeps to fine tune the fiber spectrum.
