powerful tools for efficient laser development and laser science
This page gives you an overview on our software products.
RP Fiber Calculator is a convenient tool for calculations on optical fibers.
RP Fiber Power is an extremely flexible tool for designing and optimizing fiber devices.
RP Resonator is a particularly flexible tool for laser resonator design.

RP Q-switch can simulate the power evolution in Q-switched lasers.
Most of our software products support a powerful script language, which gives you an extraordinary degree of flexibility.
Here you learn about software license conditions, updates and upgrades, etc.
Competent technical support is a key quality associated with software from RP Photonics.
RP Photonics has distributors in various countries.
The RP Photonics Software News keep you updated on our developments and give the users additional interesting hints.
Here you can make inquiries e.g. concerning technical details, prices and quotations.

There are three different ways of handling the software: using the predefined interactive forms, scripting, and custom forms.
The predefined forms make it easy to get started with common simulations, e.g. of the optical power and excitation levels in fiber amplifiers and lasers.
You can simply enter the parameters of some predefined models and the required graphical diagrams.
Such interactive forms – as also offered by competing products – give you an easy start, but this concept is naturally limited.
You may want to do some simulations for which no predefined model is available.
For such cases, we offer the possibility of scripting.
With that, you can implement even most sophisticated models.
Our software offers you convenient links between interactive forms and scripting.
When you execute an interactive form, the software automatically generates a script, which you can take as the basis for a more refined simulations script.
Also, you can enter snippets of script code into the forms if you only need a few extras, such as additional graphs in diagrams.
RP Fiber Power comes with comprehensive documentation in the form of a detailed user manual and a partly even more detailed interactive help system.
The script editors support you with convenient features like syntax highlighting, parameter help and automatic code reformatting.
It is easy to equip a simulation script with a custom form, so that you can conveniently enter your inputs and inspect the outputs.
You can easily switch between different data sets, which are stored in separate files.
There are specialized interactive tools such as the pulse display window and the beam profile viewer.
You get very helpful technical support directly from the developer of the software.
For example, you can get your scripts improved, or Dr. Paschotta will even develop full simulation scripts for you.
