To run the simulation, perform the following procedure.

1Save the project as a *.bpd file.
2From the Simulation menu, select Calculate 2D Isotropic Simulation.The Simulation Parameters dialog box appears.
3To start the simulation, click Run.A message box appears and prompts you to save the project and run the simulation.
4Click Yes.OptiBPM_Simulator opens and runs four iterations, changing the refractive index of the waveguide each time (see Figure 13).

At the end of the simulation, a message appears and prompts you to open OptiBPM_Analyzer.
5Click Yes, and then click No to leave OptiBPM_Simulator open.

OptiBPM_Analyzer opens.
