Virtual Lab Sim Library

Exploring Photonic Integrated Circuit Components

The following interactive tools will allow you to explore the properties of a silicon waveguides and integrated photonic components. A series of tabs explore key parameters for each photonic component, which can be adjusted using sliding bars or handles (see instructions below for more details).



Use the tabs to progress through the simulation environment:

Use the UI elements to explore the parameter space in each tab (interactive yellow/black buttons and sliders):

Note: Select the "Quiz Me" button on bottom right for assessment questions, and enter full screen mode using full screen button on bottom right of each sim:
