OptiFiber: Cutting-edge Optical Fiber Design

The optimal design of a given optical communication system depends directly on the choice of optical fiber parameters. Dimensions of the fiber cross-section, material composition, and refractive index profile all influence important linear and non-linear phenomena. OptiFiber uses numerical mode solvers and other models specialized to fibers for calculating dispersion, losses, birefringence, and PMD.
