WaveGuide Optics Design Software

OptiBPM can improve design engineers’ productivity, reduce risk, and lower overall costs related to design of waveguide solutions. OptiBPM’s high-value functionality includes powerful integration capabilities with our award-winning optical communication system software, OptiSystem, and with Design Workshop’s dw-2000, a mask layout physical design and verification software.

Based on the Beam Propagation Method (BPM) of simulating light passage through any waveguide medium, OptiBPM allows designers to observe computer-simulated light field distribution and examine the radiation and the guided field, simultaneously.
