Passive Component Design

FIMMWAVE
FIMMWAVE Waveguide Mode Solvers

An exhaustive suite of waveguide mode solvers including advanced finite-difference and finite-element solvers, fibre solvers and many more.
FIMMPROP
FIMMPROP Fully Vectorial Bidirectional Optical Propagation

A rigorous fully vectorial and bi-directional optical propagation tool based on EigenMode Expansion (EME). With a scattering matrix approach with an advanced taper algorithm this is the ideal tool for silicon photonics design!
OmniSim
OmniSim FDTD and FETD Simulators for Nanophotonics and Plasmonics

A unique propagation tool combining our state-of-the-art FDTD Engine with our innovative FETD Engine, ideal for modelling plasmonics. OmniSim comes with a user-friendly layout editor and a 2D FEFD (Finite-Element Frequency-Domain) solver ideal for fast optimisation.
CrystalWave
CrystalWave Photonic Crystal Design Suite

The ultimate photonic crystal design suite featuring our FDTD and FEFD Engines, a band solver and the most flexible layout editor for 2D and 3D photonic crystal lattices.
EchelleCAD
Epipprop Echelle Grating Model

The first commercial model and design environment for Echelle gratings.
Kallistos
Kallistos Automatic Design Optimisation

An advanced, user-friendly and utterly flexible automatic optimisation add-on compatible with our entire passive component design suite.

Active Component Design

PICWave
PICWave Photonic Circuit and Laser Diode Simulator

A unique active and passive Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) simulator including an advanced laser-diode and SOA model and a flexible design flow environment.
Harold
