To run the simulation, perform the following procedure.

Step Action
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).
