Online Optical Simulation Software
(c) 1997-2016 Andrew Sarangan
These tools can be used for simulating integrated optical circuits (IOC).
The optical mode of a waveguide can be computed, and then numerically
propagated through any user-defined optical structure.
What makes this software unique is that everything
can be done over a web browser. There is no need to install any
software on your computer. The computation is performed entirely on the remote computing cluster.
It makes no difference what computer you have (PC, Mac or even a iPhone), or
how fast your internet connection is.
All the interfaces are written in very short html codes; there are no
All the numerical routines (which are implemented in 'C' and executed on a Linux
platform) are entirely transparent to the user.
Now running on Amazon EC2.
