Photon Design’s latest innovation takes the market leading EigenMode Expansion method into an entirely new domain of simulations. Our new tool MT-FIMMPROP can simulate entire PIC components with arbitrary waveguide tapers and bends without having to split a device across multiple simulations.

Users can define computational regions that automatically conform to waveguide paths. The computational region in this long arm Mach Zhender interferometer [see image] is less than 10% of the total canvas space, leading to huge efficiency gains.

MT FIMMPROP combines together the role of three tools (component simulation, circuit simulation, and layout) in a single convenient environment.
