Planar Optics Software and Design Experts
We develop single workflow design software for planar and meta-optics. Our team is eager to solve your photonic design and integration challenges.
Lenses designed and simulations run with the software
PlanOpSim’s team has over 10 years of experience in optical modelling in multiple aspects of photonics:
The PlanOpsim software provides a start-to-finish workflow for the design of meta-lenses and other meta-surfaces.
To design meta-surfaces PlanOpSim simulates both the tiny nano-structures and larger components made of millions of nano-structures. PlanOpSim software applies a multi-scale optical model to simulate these components effectively. The sub-wavelength meta-atoms are modelled with a full wave solution to Maxwell equations and the component scale simulation is calculated using efficient propagation optics.
The meta-cell module is used for modelling the behaviour of meta-atoms. The PlanOpSim software models arbitrary shaped nano-structures using the RCWA method. Many shapes are predefined in the software and are easily parametrized.
After simulation the response of the meta-atoms is analyzed via a versatile visualization menu. In depth analysis of the waveguided mode’s field distribution is possible via the waveguide probes.
The meta-cell calculations are seamlessly integrated with the meta-component module. You simply select meta-atoms from your nanostructure library and specify the phase or intensity profile to be reproduced by the meta-surfaces.
The meta-component design algorithm generates the meta-surface layout for multiple targets of different wavelength, polarization or angle. After designing a meta-surface its performance can be analyzed directly in the software. The analysis functionality easily simulates dependence on polarization, spectrum and incidence angles.
