Active Device Simulation with RSoft LaserMOD

Advanced Topics in CODE V

June 6-8, 2017 — New York area

This course will cover the basics of LaserMOD for the design and simulation of active semiconductor lasers (FP, DFB, and VCSEL device families), and active devices such as photodetectors and modulators. It will begin with the basics of the LaserMOD Tool and will gradually move to intermediate and advanced topics.

Summary of Topics

  • Overview of the active devices which can be simulated in LaserMOD
  • Introduction of simulation methodology used by LaserMOD
  • Introduction to the LaserMOD CAD where the geometry and material properties of a design are set
  • Review of RSoft CAD topics that apply to LaserMOD, such as Symbol, Material, and File Formats
  • Advanced LaserMOD CAD layout options
  • Meshing
  • Profile Generation
  • Material Gain Calculation
  • Mode solving (via BeamPROP™, FemSIM™, and built-in Solver)
  • Full active simulation
  • Extracting Simulation Results
  • Scanning of design parameters (including scripting)
  • FP Lasers
  • VCSELs
  • DFBs
  • Photodetectors
  • Modulators
  • Utilities that include active device simulation (if interest from attendees and time allows): Solar Cell Utility™, Multi-Physics Utility™, and Tapered Laser Utility™ 

This will be in the New York area, Details to come.
