Advanced Electro-optic Simulation Environment
Introducing a powerful new feature in OptiBPM 9. A flexible electrode simluation environment to facilitate the design of III-V (electro) optical waveguides. Users now have the ability to place an electrode in a doped epitaxy layer below the guide, increasing design flexibility through various simulation options (click on the images below to enlarge).
Slanted Walls on waveguide profiles
OptiBPM 9 now supports the modeling of slanted waveguides in the design environment. Normally, channel waveguides have sidewalls perpendicular to the substrate. In some cases, the manufactured shape is more like a trapezoid, where the angle of the two walls may be any angle.
The OptiBPM profile designer now includes fields for two angles, the inclination of the right and the left sidewall.
3D Power Monitor
Monitor the power in specified layers of a 3D multilayer structure. Users can now collect useful data about the direction of power flow from this expansive new feature.
Many optical simulations involve lens systems, as well as waveguides. As a result, we have created a streamlined interaface for users of the popular lens design tool, ZEMAX, to model an optical system with both lenses and waveguides using OptiBPM. This handy utility converts Optiwave data files to and from ZEMAX data files.
