Paper Abstract

Accurate modeling of photonic devices is essential for the development of new, higher performance optical components required by current and future high-bandwidth communication systems. This paper reviews one of the predominant techniques for such modeling, the beam propagation method (BPM), and describes several applications along with experimental results. BPM can be used for both mode solving and the simulation of propagation in nearly arbitrary structures, and as a result, is commonly used in commercial design tools.
