Tech-X Corporation Showcases PIC Movies


Multiphysics tool highlights the inner workings of photonic integrated circuits.

Tech-X Corporation has demonstrated how its software can be used to perform 3D simulations of various components found in photonic integrated circuits (PICs). To showcase the tools, the firm has uploaded movies that exhibit the geometrical construction of devices in VSim and the VisIt visualization of electromagnetic waves propagating through them. Example structures include a cladding-all-around dielectric waveguide, a microring resonator, and an arrayed waveguide grating (AWG).

Tech-X describes VSim as a flexible, multi-platform, multiphysics software tool for running computationally intensive electromagnetic, electrostatic, magnetostatic, and plasma simulations in the presence of complex dielectric, magnetic, and metallic shapes. According to the firm, users can switch easily between one, two or three dimensions, and watch the model in action thanks to algorithms designed for the exacting demands of high performance computing systems, whether on a laptop or supercomputing cluster.
