To run the simulation, perform the following procedure.
|1||Save the project as a *.bpd file.|
|2||From the Simulation menu, select Calculate 2D Isotropic Simulation.The Simulation Parameters dialog box appears.|
|3||To start the simulation, click Run.A message box appears and prompts you to save the project and run the simulation.|
|4||Click Yes.OptiBPM_Simulator opens and runs four iterations, changing the refractive index of the waveguide each time (see Figure 13).|
Figure 13: Run the simulation
|At the end of the simulation, a message appears and prompts you to open OptiBPM_Analyzer.|
|5||Click Yes, and then click No to leave OptiBPM_Simulator open.|
