Where to Buy Fiber Simulation Software

It can be useful to simulate various aspects of fiber optics on computers, e.g. for rapid and efficient development and for the analysis of experienced problems. Simulation software is available both for passive and active fiber optics. For example, it can address beam propagation in multimode fibers or various details of fiber amplifiers and lasers.

Check List for Fiber Simulation Software

Click here to see a check list before buying such products!
  • Does it contain a mode solver?
  • Can one conveniently define all fiber parameters, and take parameter sets from some library containing commercially available fibers?
  • Is it also suitable for active fibers, i.e., for fiber amplifiers and lasers? Does it only have some simplified gain model, or can one define arbitrary level schemes and processes? Can interactions between different ions (e.g., energy transfers) be simulated?
  • Can arbitrarily many different waves (with different wavelengths) interact in the fiber?
  • Can all input waves have time-dependent optical powers?
  • Is it also suitable for waveguides without a radial symmetry, or for bulk lasers?
  • Can one conveniently define the fiber details such as arbitrary refractive index profiles or mode shapes, concentration profiles of laser-active ions or chromatic dispersion?
  • For fiber amplifier models: can amplified spontaneous emission and the noise figure be computed?
  • Can you display and store the computed output data in flexible ways?
  • Can it simulate the propagation of ultrashort pulses, also taking into account chromatic dispersion and various types of nonlinearities, also effects in non-fiber components?
  • Does it come with proper documentation and a comprehensive online help system?
  • Is competent technical support available?

Note that the software RP Fiber Power from RP Photonics would fulfill these demands.
