VPIphotonics Transmission & Component Design Suite – Version 9.3

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.

Photonic Design Environment offering a high level of usability and personalization

Among the new features of Version 9.3 are

  • New library of interface modules for automatic signal conversion and transfer between VPIphotonics' simulation software and lab equipment, which can be extended to accommodate for user-specific requirements and other equipment types

  • Photonics TLM module - significant performance improvement of multi-Lorentzian fitting for measured carrier-dependent gain and voltage-dependent electro-absorption spectra

  • Three new instrumentation modules are provided to support the automated characterization of optical filters, lasers and SOAs

  • 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
