WG2

class ipkiss3.cml.WG2

Single mode polynomial waveguide model.

Uses a polynomial expression of the effective index and loss (in dB/m) as function of wavelength offset.

Parameters
n_eff: List[float]

Polynomial coefficients of the mode effective index as function of wavelength offset from center_wavelength [/m^n]. Highest order first (effective index at center_wavelength last).

loss: List[float]

Polynomial coefficients of the loss of the waveguide mode as function of wavelength offset from center_wavelength [dB/m / m^n]. Highest order first (loss at center_wavelength last).

center_wavelength: float (m)

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

length: float (m)

Total length of the waveguide in meter.

Notes

The effective index and loss are calculated as:

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}n_{eff}(\lambda) = n_{eff}[n] + (\lambda-\lambda_c) * n_{eff}[n-1] + ... + (\lambda-\lambda_c)^2 * n_{eff}[0]\\loss(\lambda) = loss[n] + (\lambda-\lambda_c) * loss[n-1] + ... + (\lambda-\lambda_c)^2 * loss[0]\end{aligned}\end{align} \]

Where n is the order of the polynomial, \(\lambda_c\) is the central wavelength at which \(n_{eff}(\lambda_c) == n_{eff}[n]\) and \($loss(\lambda_c) = loss[n]\).

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:

\[A = 10^{-loss * L * 1e-4 / 20.0}\]
