Optiwave OptiFDTD Design Tool

The OptiFDTD 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

OptiFDTD’s simulator is based on the 2D/3D finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method:

  • Typical uses include high index contrast structures, periodic structures and photonic crystals
  • Long simulation times (multi-processor and multi-core hardware an asset)
