Paper Abstract

Fabricating optoelectronic devices can be extremely costly due to the need for using high end fabrication methods such as photo lithography. Therefore, the importance of being able to accurately and rapidly prototype an optoelectronic device cannot be overstated. By using commercially available full wave 3D simulation software (FW3D), rapid prototyping can be achieved. A complete rapid prototyping process would require a discussion on simulation as well as fabrication work, however for this paper we will only focus on the simulation aspect which is rapid optimization. The bulk of our work will be to model and rapidly optimize an optoelectronic device which is currently of interest to many optoelectronic researchers. This structure is labeled as a frequency selective surface. By using two widely known numerical methods, we will demonstrate the modeling and simulation aspects needed for achieving rapid optimization and fully characterizing the optoelectronic performance of this device.
