This optical wave simulation software enables user-defined waveguide propagation using a novel finite-difference method that solves the time-independent Helmholtz wave equation faster than any other method.
Finding the fundamental propagation mode takes just seconds, while higher-order modes can be identified within minutes. The software makes it easy to save all projects and reload them for continued study. Exporting data to other programs is also simple, as the software can export data in ASCII format, or save images in BPM format for publication.
One exciting feature of this software is the ability to save video frames for creating impressive videos of laser beams propagating through waveguides. The software is based on a new mathematical technique that solves the time-independent, scalar Helmholtz wave equation more quickly than other techniques. This makes it ideal for engineering and physics students who want to learn more about optical waveguides and for technologists who want to design optical waveguides or fiber lasers.
In summary, this software is a comprehensive and user-friendly tool for creating, analyzing, and designing optical waveguides. Its intuitive interface and efficient calculations make it an ideal choice for anyone interested in this field.
