Paper Abstract

We present a tool for the simulation of active and passive photonic integrated circuits (PIC) based on EME (eigenmode expansion) for modelling the details of circuit elements plus the travelling wave time domain (TWTD) technique for connecting the circuit together and modelling non-linear elements such as SOAs. We show how the two algorithms can be linked together using FIR filters to create a highly efficient PIC simulator. We discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the approach and illustrate it with the simulation of a variety of active and passive examples.
