What would be the best way to simulate the effect of an applied voltage on a material / dielectric surroundings, thus the optical properties are a function of the field applied e.g. tunable optical devices?

Cheers

      Hello Calum

      I do not think that you can simulate it with optiwave products.

      However , try to to increase the doping in the optical material and run the simulation for long time. You need optimization. Then you will see variations in your propagated field from the material.

      I think that you can use optiFDTD, it is a very good tool

      Hi Calum,

      Actually it is possible to model electro-optic effects with OptiBPM. We have a tutorial on a modulator at:

      http://optiwave.com/optibpm-manuals/bpm-lesson-10-electro-optic-modulator-2/

      In this tutorial we reproduce the results from the paper:

      S.R. Sakamoto, A. Jackson, N. Dagli, “Substrate Removed GaAs-AlGaAs Electrooptic modulators”, IEEE Photonics Technology Letters 11(10), p1244 – 1246 (1999)

      Hi Damian

      Thanks for the info. I was unaware of this.

      Regards

      Thanks everyone! I’ll have a play around.

      Hi Callium,

      Yes, OptiBPM is best tool for simulation regarding tunable devices. Also OptiSpice can be consider if you want to simulate by changing electrical properties in optical domain.
