The­or­et­ical Model Cal­cu­la­tion

The foundation for the successful design of devices is a reliable theoretical model calculation of the problem beforehand. On by this can potential Problems be recognized and eliminated, minimizing the risk of failure. For this purpose, a veriety of sophisticated software at industry standards is provided at INA, including:

  • AutoCAD
  • Labview

Especially for the simulation of optical structures some specialized tools exist, which have been genuinely created to fill the gaps, which are not closed by standard software solutions. The implemented methods include

  • Transfer-Matrix-modell for simulationoptical propertiesof thin films
  • Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD)
  • Plain Wave Expansion (PWE) for simulation of photonic crystals
