VB SCRIPTING EXAMPLES - OPTIFDTD
Crystal Fiber Example
This example demonstrates the coupling efficiency between coupler fiber to Crystal fiber. The Crystal fiber is designed using OptiFDTD's VB scripting feature.
Photonic Crystal Fiber
This example demonstrates how a photonic crystal fiber can be designed with VB scripting. Click the “Scripting” button to validate the code. And select the Refractive index page to observe the transverse index distribution.
Photonic Crystal at a Waveguide Bend
This is a layout uses the Photonic crystal at the waveguide bend. It once was discussed in the paper “ Hybrid integration of conventional waveguide and photonic crystal structures” by Gregory P. Nordin, Seunghyun Kim, Jingbo Cai, and Jianhua Jiang , 18 November 2002 / Vol. 10, No. 23 / OPTICS EXPRESS 1334.
