19 May 2022

The IEEE I2MTC – International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference – is the flagship conference of the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society and is dedicated to advances in measurement methodologies, measurement systems, instrumentation and sensors in all areas of science and technology. These features make I2MTC a unique event and one of the most important conferences in the field of instrumentation and measurement.

The Role of Software in the Design and Simulation of Optical & Photonics Devices, Components and Systems

Session: Expert Panel Session on Optical Instrumentation & Measurement in High-Tech Sector

Date: 19/05/2022


Abstract – Optiwave Systems Inc. offers diverse software tools that are used in the design, simulation and optimization of the parameters of photonics components, links, systems and networks. These software packages include OptiSystem, OptiSPICE, OptiInstrument, OptiBPM, OptiMode, OptiFDTD, OptiGrating, and OptiFiber.

OptiInstrument software allows users to communicate with instruments and automate their operation using remote control scripts. The software can also be used for testing and characterization of equipment in the lab or at the manufacturing floors. Recently, OptiInstrument is integrated with OptiSystem software version 19.0 allowing the use of measured data of devices and modules in the simulation of optical systems. A newly added component to OptiSystem software called Equipment Comm. and Control has an API facilitating the integration between the two software packages. The component can either call OptiInstrument software though an API or load measured data files into it. This feature enables engineers and researchers a full flexibility to analyze their designs.

Speaker’s Bio – Dr. Ahmad Atieh is a VP at Optiwave Systems Inc. Canada. He received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Yarmouk University, Jordan, M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Jordan University of Science and Technology, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Canada. He has contributed more than 100 technical papers in different refereed journals and at international conferences. He holds over 25 issued patents and several patents pending. His current research interests are in the fields of optical fiber communication systems including optical fiber characterization, optical amplifiers, nonlinear fiber optics, and optical communication transmission systems.
