Paper Abstract

A method for integrating optical wave propagation into electrical simulators is presented. For this purpose the Beam Propagation Method has been implemented using the HDL-ATM language. This enables the simulation of optical wave propagation on the system level, using current Microsystems CAD tools. Some typical optical components have been simulated using this technique and satisfactory results were obtained. This enables the analysis of MOEMS components into standard Microsystems CAD tools using electrical simulators.
