Paper Abstract

A circuit-oriented simulator operating in the spectral domain is presented as a very powerful instrument for advanced analysis of integrated and free-space optical devices. By combining elementary optical building blocks, which can be modelled at different levels of accuracy, complex optical circuits (filters, multiplexers, switches and so on) can be easily generated and their spectral properties fully derived. Computational times are order of magnitude lower than those required by electromagnetic methods.
