Logical Inline Reflectors¶
Logical inline reflectors are 2-port devices that reflect a part of the optical power back into the origin waveguide mode. The reflection coefficient can be set independently for both ports, but the transmission in both directions is the same (because of reciprocity).
Logical reflectors don’t have a Layout View, but can be used for circuit simulations. They can also be included to model parasitic inline reflections in a circuit.
WaveguideReflector takes two waveguide templates and calculates the reflection
Logical reflector: reflects a part of the light and passes on the rest
Zero-length waveguide reflector: calculates reflection based on the waveguide templates
The circuit model of the simple
Reflector has user parameters that can be directly set through the
The circuit model of the
WaveguideReflector is based on Fresnel reflection, taking the difference in
the input and output waveguide.
The reflection at the input and output is calculated as:
