To view the simulation results in OptiBPM_Analyzer, perform the following procedure.
|1||In the OptiBPM_Analyzer project directory, click Power In Output|
A graph appears and displays the power in each output waveguide as a function of iteration number. It is clear the optimum design can be found somewhere between the 3rd and 4th iteration (see Figure 29).
Figure 29: Power in output waveguides
Note: The Analyzer stores simulation data from each iteration.
|2||Open the Optical Field Propagation and Propagation Refractive Index directories, and select the contents to view (see Figure 30).|

|3||To view the simulation result for the 3rd iteration, select Iteration 3 from the Iteration drop-down list.|
