grating design software
Sol Photonics has bundled years of experience of Fiber Grating design and manufacturing into an easy to use software package which we named GDS (short for Grating Design Software). GDS is intuitively easy to use with just two separate Graphical User Interface (GUI) windows and a limited amount of required settings. The aim of GDS is not only to simulate Fiber Bragg Gratings, but also to provide the end-user the parameters to continue fabricating the simulated grating. For example, the parameters like pitch and chirp rate of the phase mask which are needed to manufacture the simulated grating are part of the GDS software.
Summary of GDS features:
uniform Fiber Bragg Gratings
linear chirped Gratings
FBG center wavelength, FWHM, SLSR, and Reflectivity
fiber mode solver (LP01 mode) to determine effective refractive index
phase mask parameters
