Photon Design Newsletter - Summer 2019


It has been a little while since we last sent out a newsletter. Here is a quick summary of what has been going on at Photon Design over the last few months.


FIMMWAVE 7.0                                

A major upgrade to our popular passive photonic component solver – is now available. This features a redesigned, greatly improved user interface and improvements to our EME solver that will give substantial speed/accuracy improvements for some of the hardest problems. If you are doing silicon inverse-tapers, or anything containing small high-index contrast features in a large cross-section, then you can expect 5x or greater speed improvements!If you have not used FIMMWAVE/FIMMPROP before come and request a test drive.
Version 7.0 coming soon! This will feature our new much improved user interface. New version of our innovative FETD engine which will see many simulations speeding up 4x or more! Do get in touch with us if this interests you.

Harold VCSEL Model
Photon Design is pleased to announce its comprehensive VCSEL model. Building on our 25 years’ experience in optical and laser diode modelling, this is a full 3D model covering optical mode, current flow, drift/diffusion, QW gain, thermal flow. Producing LI curves, quantum efficiency, spectra, linewidth, far field. Later versions will model also dynamics.


Become a Photon Design Expert!
We will be holding our usual Fimmwave Online Training course in the coming months. Additionally will be holding PICWave and Epipprop training sessions for the first time. If this interests you please contact Support.
Also look out for our hands-on session directly proceeding Metamaterials 2019 in Rome. Make sure you arrange flights accordingly. Book Now!

Journal Publication Review
At Photon Design we are proud at how much academic work is done using our software. Here are some interesting papers which have recently been published
-Manipulating of nanometer spacing dual-wavelength by controlling the apodized grating depth in microring resonators
-Design of a promising silicon slot waveguide-based ultra-short low loss efficient polarization rotator for the mid-IR

Recently published a paper with the assistance of our software? Please tell us about it, we'd love to know!

EPIC Membership
Photon Design is pleased to have joined the European Photonic Industry Consortium (EPIC) back in January 2019. We were lucky enough to participate in this year's EPIC AGM in Glasgow. If you're also an EPIC member, do look out for us at future meetings. We look forward to future business connections made through our partnership with EPIC.
