WDM Phasar Freeware


Optical Wavelength Division Multiplexing

Optiwave is now distributing its WDM Phasar software as freeware.

Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) is a key element of photonics technology in the telecommunication industry. An essential part of R&D of WDM technologies has focused on exploring devices based on optical Phased Arrays, or PHASARS.

What are PHASARs?

PHASARs, or Arrayed-Waveguide Gratings (AWGs), are employed in optical (de)multiplexers and routers. The modeling of PHASARs features a large number of geometric and material parameters, which are based on degrees of freedom in the design process.

Since these parameters are crucial for device performance, an advanced simulation tool for optical wavelength division multiplexing devices based on optical phased arrays can:

  • Significantly speed up the design process
  • Reduce the need for extra fabrication runs
  • Lower costs.

What are some applications of WDM?

Wavelength division multiplexing is critical for a variety of applications, such as:

  • Transmitting multiple streams over a single fiber cable for long-distance internet services.
  • Large-scale telecommunications involving undersea optical fiber transmissions.
  • High-speed data transfers involving multiple servers at large data centers.
