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).
Sim #1 - Waveguide Fundamentals
Sim #2 - Radial Bend
Sim #3 - Directional Coupler
Sim #4 - Y-Branch Splitter
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:
