OIDA Sponsored Webinar: Multicore SM and MM Fibers with Trenches and Air-Hole Assisted


OIDA Sponsored Webinar: Multicore SM and MM Fibers with Trenches and Air-Hole Assisted

28 July 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 - Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 04:00)

Optiwave Systems Inc. offers software tools that can be used to simulate & analyze single-mode and multimode multicore fibers with/without trenches and air-hole assisted structures. The supported modes in the structure are accurately obtained by modal analysis in OptiMode software. Then, the coupling coefficients between the modes in the same core or different cores are calculated and the crosstalk is found using OptiSystem software. The crosstalk parameters are used also in OptiSystem software to simulate modulated signal transmission in MCF as will be demonstrated in this webinar.

The following topics will be covered in the webinar:

  1. Design MM and SM structure process (OptiMode)/Save modes’ field profile/Load the files to OptiSystem component/Crosstalk calculation (XT)/Bending effects, Core pitch
  2. Describe OptiSystem MCF standalone components
  3. Simulate the XT effect on transmitted signals using OptiSystem software
  4. Live Demo
