OptiMode is a suite of applications dedicated to mode solving. Introduced with the OptiBPM 10 release, OptiMode has a Designer, Simulator, and Analyser application for each of the three stages of the project definition and simulation. Projects in OptiMode can be parameterized and executed in script in the same manner as OptiBPM. This lesson describes how to use the 3D mode solvers of OptiMode. The example follows the well-known COST project waveguide [1] (see Figure 1).
