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 ProPulse can simulate the pulse evolution e.g. in mode-locked lasers and sync-pumped OPOs.
RP Coating is a particularly flexible design tool for dielectric multilayer systems.
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.
When using software for complex tasks, a competent and helpful technical support is essential.
RP Photonics takes this very serious: the support is always given by Dr. Paschotta himself,
who has developed the software,
is a distinguished expert in this technical area,
and feels personally responsible to make sure that his customers can successfully use the software.
You may, for example, send some portions of script code via e-mail and receive corrected code for doing certain things.
RP Photonics also has very handy software for remote support, where you can give Dr. Paschotta access to your screen via the Internet and watch how he fixes problems on your PC.
A specialty: the support can not only be used for directly software-specific issues, but also for related technical and scientific questions!
In effect, this means that some number of technical consulting hours are included in the license fee.
For commercial licenses, these are eight hours, and for non-commercial licenses four hours.
In case that you run out of your included support time, you can of course obtain additional support, with payment based on an hourly rate.
Nearly all customers, however, do not need that.
