VPIdeviceDesigner(tm) offers researchers an easy-to-use platform based on an object-oriented Python interface. This ease of use is coupled with the design flexibility supporting 2D waveguide cross-sections and 3D device layouts made of real (dispersive, temperature-dependent, doped, anisotropic) optical materials. One of the key benefits of this new software platform is that it enables a complete hierarchical design workflow. Targeting photonic device design, VPIdeviceDesigner complements VPIphotonics Design Suite, an industry leading software platform for designing photonic integrated circuits, fiber optic components and optical transmission systems.
