The Optiwave toolset includes:

  • Layout and analysis tools
  • 2D/3D mode solvers
  • Integrated scripting capability
  • Support for multi-processor and multi-core simulation
  • GDSII/DXF output mask formats

The OptiBPM’s simulator is based on the 2D/3D beam propagation method (BPM):

  • Typical uses include slowly varying structures, low index contrast structures and long structures which would be too large for FDTD
  • Short simulation times
