VPIdeviceDesigner™ is a versatile simulation framework for the analysis and optimization of integrated photonic devices, waveguides, and optical fibers. This powerful design tool offers a set of full-vectorial finite-difference mode solvers that support widely customizable nonuniform meshing with symmetric and perfectly matched layer absorbing boundaries for simulations of guided modes in straight and bent waveguides and fibers. For simulations of photonic devices, it offers 2D and 3D implementations of the finite-difference frequency-domain beam-propagation method (BPM). VPIdeviceDesigner supports flexible defining of 2D waveguide cross-sections and 3D device layouts made of real (dispersive, temperature-dependent, doped, etc.) optical materials.
