Integrated nano-structure and component design

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.
