CST – Computer Simulation Technology

Efficient and Accurate Simulation of Optical Devices


Today, optical devices are key components in many areas, such as communications, remote sensing, or medical applications, and their role will increase in the future. Simulations are already a very efficient way of optimizing a device, possibly even before the prototype stage. However, simulating optical devices can be challenging due to special material requirements, or simply due to the size of the device in relation to the wavelengths of interest.

CST STUDIO SUITE® offers a unique platform for handling such challenges. The user may import or build even highly complex structures using a user-friendly, interactive GUI. The device can then be simulated by selecting the most appropriate algorithm (e.g., FIT/FDTD, FEM, BEM/MoM, MLFMM, and more). Dispersive, anisotropic, and non-linear materials are supported. High performance computing (HPC) options, such as MPI or GPU, are available, and the results can be displayed and analyzed in the GUI using a comprehensive post-processing library and state-of-the-art visualization engine. ...

This eSeminar will demonstrate how CST STUDIO SUITE has been used to analyze a number of essential optical devices, such as silicon-on-insulator (SOI) waveguides, photonic crystals (PC), plasmonic nanoantennas, and optical gratings.
