OptiKit: An Open Source Kit for Simulation of On-Chip Optical Components

Provided by: IIT
Topic: Hardware
Format: PDF
In this paper the authors present the design of OptiKit - an open source kit for simulating passive optical devices in embedded photonics based chips. OptiKit includes models for waveguides, parallel waveguides, multiple MMI devices, Y junctions, directional couplers, and waveguide bends. They describe the structure, basic physics, possible applications of each device, and the details of the devices included in OptiKit. Each device has been optimized for performance, and power, and has been tuned appropriately.
