WG1

class ipkiss3.cml.WG1(**kwargs)

Single mode waveguide model with a linear dispersion curve.

Parameters:

n_eff: float

Effective index at center_wavelength.

n_g: float

Group index at center_wavelength.

loss: float (dB/m)

Loss of the waveguide in dB/m.

center_wavelength: float (m)

Center wavelength (in meter) of the model at which n_eff, n_g and loss are defined.

length: float (m)

Total length of the waveguide in meter.

Notes

The actual effective index is a linear function of wavelength, and calculated as follows:

\[n_{eff}(\lambda) = n_{eff,0} - (\lambda-\lambda_c) * \frac{n_g-n_{eff}}{\lambda_c}\]

Where \(\lambda_c\) is the central wavelength, at which \(n_{eff}(\lambda_c)=n_{eff,0}\).

The scatter matrix is given by:

\[\begin{split}\mathbf{S}_{wg}=\begin{bmatrix} 0 & \exp(-j\frac{2 \pi}{\lambda}L n_{eff}(\lambda)) * A \\ \exp(-j\frac{2 \pi}{\lambda}L n_{eff}(\lambda)) * A & 0 \end{bmatrix}\end{split}\]

Where the amplitude loss is calculated as:

\[A = 10^{-loss_{dB/m} * L/20.0}\]
