About this Webinar

The simulation of optical and photonic devices and systems requires many solvers to cover multiple length scales and physical effects. Simulations can model nano-scale devices, such as image sensor pixels, multi-quantum well lasers, micro-LED emitters, and macroscale systems, such as augmented reality displays and full automobile scenes with multiple light sources and camera sensors. Furthermore, system modeling may, and increasingly will, involve combining simulations from numerous scales. For example, the analysis of a smartphone display requires the simulation of individual pixels and the simulation of an entire scene with different sources of ambient light to perform human vision analysis. This talk will review various methods of simulating electromagnetics for optics, from ray tracers to full-wave electromagnetic solvers and specialty solvers for periodic and planar systems. In addition, we will discuss the simulation of quantum and electro-optical effects for light absorption, emission, modulation, and amplification. Finally, we will discuss solvers for integrated photonic circuits for classical and quantum applications. You’ll come away with an understanding of the multiphysics and multiscale nature of optics and photonics, the simulation challenges this creates, and the breadth of solvers available at Ansys to overcome these challenges.
