Abstract: We present our versatile simulation framework for the schematic-driven and layout-aware design of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) realizing a fast and user-friendly design flow for large-scale PICs comprising passive and active building blocks (BBs). We show how the seamless interaction of circuit simulation with photonic layout design tools allows to specify and utilize directly physical locations and orientations of BBs of standardized process design kits. We demonstrate how to combine graphical schematic capture and automated waveguide routing, and discuss by means of typical design applications how an optimized design flow can speed-up the virtual prototyping of complex PICs and optoelectronic applications.
Session 7, Electromagnetics I, Paper 10098-30 – Tue 31 Jan 2017, 3:30pm to 5:10pmI. Koltchanov, A. Richter, J. Farina
Abstract: We present a modeling-based design technique addressing DBR fiber laser sensors which overcomes critical simulation challenges. We compare approaches simulating the cavity characteristics in frequency or time. We show that for an adequate description of the laser spectrum, modal and noise characteristics the time domain approach in combination with a dynamic fiber model is desirable. Stationary operation can be achieved after several thousand iterations where the laser shows a single-mode spectrum with linewidth in agreement to the quantum limit. Based on our model we show how the laser characteristics depend on the grating frequencies and can be used for sensor applications.
