Paper Abstract

The field of integrated optics design software tools is reviewed. Current status of main waveguide optics calculation tools is discussed. An example of design environment is described in more detail.Integrated optics design is divided into different areas: layout design, process modeling, waveguide device design and guided-wave circuit design. Typical present approach of software is emphasis on layout design and beam propagation method simulation, aimed mainly for device design, but somewhat limited in scope by the lack in addressing constructive device design viewpoint.
