This lesson outlines how to use the 3D vectorial BPM simulator for the Anisotropic medium.

We simulate the waveguide defined in Lesson 17: Modal analysis of an anisotropic buried waveguide, the propagation of the beam in an anisotropic buried rectangular optical waveguide. The waveguide will be excited by launching an input field with Ex defined by a Gaussian and the Ey component is null.

The procedures are:

•     Setting the simulation parameters

•     Viewing the elements of the permittivity (XY cut)

Before you start this lesson

•     Familiarize yourself with the procedures in Lesson 1: Getting Started.

•     Complete the procedures in Lesson 17: Modal analysis of an anisotropic buried waveguide in order to create the project file.

To continue from where Lesson 17 finished, open the project file: Lesson17Aniso.bpd.
