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).

 

Instructions:

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:
