About this Webinar

The 2023 R1 release of Ansys Lumerical introduces a series of powerful new capabilities to extend usability, accuracy, performance, and functionality across its family of products.

Ansys Lumerical is speeding up again, this time by a factor of 5X for electro-optical co-simulation of photonic circuits and across the board by the new Ansys Gateway powered by AWS. Our new Ansys Optics Launcher gives immediate access to our optics portfolio of examples and trials. Your favorite FDTD has a new modernized CAD, and our powerful RCWA has a new GUI to speed up further and improve your design experience.

 We’ll also demonstrate our qINTERCONNECT solver for photonic quantum circuit modeling, new self-consistent charge and quantum well simulation capabilities, and powerful new layout-driven workflows for the component design of integrated photonics. Several improvements for integrated flows with Zemax and Speos further streamline the modeling of nanoscale to macroscale optics for augmented reality, metalens design, and imaging systems will also be presented.

What You Will Learn

  • See the modernized CAD view in FDTD
  • Learn and use Ansys Lumerical RCWA with more ease using its new GUI
  • Access all optics examples from the new Ansys Optics Launcher
  • Experience the power of the cloud via the new Ansys Gateway powered by AWS
  • Accurately simulate your macroscopic optics design as coupled to its nanoscale building blocks via new streamlined workflows between Ansys Lumerical, Zemax, and Speos
  • Predict the behavior of active devices via the new self-consistent Ansys Lumerical MQW and Lumerical CHARGE simulations
  • Verify PIC designs via layout-driven workflows in KLayout using the new streamlined layout import feature for component-level design
  • Speed up your electro-optical co-simulation of photonic circuits by 5X
  • Discover the new INTERCONNECT solver for modeling quantum behavior in photonic integrated circuits

Who Should Attend

Photonic and optical engineers and scientists will attend to learn about the latest simulation capabilities and how best to leverage the tools in their design process
