Introduction to Photonic Component and Circuit Simulations with Lumerical's Design Tools

Please note that registration for this event is now closed, as the event has reached capacity.

In this one-day workshop, learn to use Lumerical's design tools solvers by working through application examples of current industrial and academic interest. The examples will demonstrate how the solvers can be used either standalone or in combination to simulate passive and active components as well as to extract compact model and perform photonic integrated circuit simulations. Attendees will obtain a broad range of knowledge on the main product features that can be applied across a wide variety of applications. Users are expected to have a basic familiarity with the products, which can be obtained through the product introductory webinars.
