Version 9.3 provides new modeling features dedicated to specific design applications compared to the previous versions of VPItransmissionMaker/VPIcomponentMaker.
Among the new features are a new multimode doped fiber model for SDM applications, high-power amplifiers and lasers, the improved support of measured gain and electro-absorption spectra in laser sections, as well as new instrumentation tools.
Further on, VPIphotonics is proud to announce with VPIlabExpert a new product addressing the specific requirements of experimentalists for flexible data pre- and post-processing and complex signal analysis functions.
New mode solver and fiber propagation modules for multimode Er-doped fiber applications, such as optical amplifiers for Spatial Division Multiplexing systems, and high-power fiber amplifiers and lasers using multimode Large Mode Area fibers
New beam coupler module to simulate coupling of an incident light beam into a multimode fiber or waveguide for short-reach conventional multimode transmission.
Enhanced multimode fiber solver to support arbitrary refractive profiles including trench-assisted ones
Experimental demonstration of 125Gb/s coherent OFDM using VPIlabExpert
together with Tektronix arbitrary waveform generator and real-time scope
Existing demonstrations have been modified and new ones added to illustrate the functionality and applications of the new features and modules. There are over 760 demonstrations available in the products now.
