This course introduces the finite-difference eigenmode (FDE) solver that is part of MODE. It is primarily intended for beginner to intermediate users, with a focus on providing practical examples to common tasks. The course covers frequently used features with the goal of giving users an understanding of the solver physics, simulation workflow and data analysis techniques.
- Basic understanding of electromagnetism and mode/waveguide theory.
All photonics engineers.
Lectures and demos. A major emphasis is placed on balanced mix of basic theoretical knowledge and helpful practical examples that will allow new users to quickly become proficient and productive with FDE.
