Design Example: Multicore and Photonic Crystal Fibers

With VPIdeviceDesigner you can perform an arbitrarily complex analysis of the properties of designed waveguides and fibers. Built-in utilities allow to easily calculate effective mode area, mode confinement factor, effective and group mode indices, attenuation, and other characteristics.

Design Example: Integrated Devices with BPM

3D and 2D BPM solvers enable modelling of photonic integrated devices which cross section may vary within the propagation axis, such as Directional Couplers, MMIs, and Polarization Converters.

Design Example: Free Space Optics with BPM

VPIdeviceDesigner allows for simulation of wide applications via calculation of propagation, diffraction, and interferences between light beams. This enables modelling of free space transmission, optical lenses, diffraction gratings, and birefringent prisms.
