Paper Abstract

Among all the simulation techniques currently used in the modeling of integrated optical devices, the group of Beam Propagation Methods is one of the most powerful and flexible. Here, we analyze an 1 X 4 branch coupler fabricated in glass by ion-exchange with the purpose of checking the capabilities of this algorithm and its reliability through different implementations. A comparison is carried out between the simulation results from two software packages developed in house and a commercial program: such results are also compared with the data resulting from the experimental characterization of the coupler.
