SBendDirectionalCoupler

class picazzo3.wg.dircoup.cell.SBendDirectionalCoupler

A directional coupler consisting of 2 parallel (horizontal) waveguides with S-shaped bends at the start and end.

Parameters
trace_template1: PCell and _WaveguideTemplate

waveguide template used by the south arm of the directional coupler

trace_template2: PCell and _WaveguideTemplate

waveguide template used by the north arm of the directional coupler. If not set, it defaults to the template of the south arm

wg1a: PCell

South-west waveguide

wg1b: PCell

South-east waveguide

wg2a: PCell

North-west waveguide

wg2b: PCell

North-east waveguide

coupler_length: float and Real, number and number >= 0

length of the directional coupler

name: String that contains only ISO/IEC 8859-1 (extended ASCII py3) or pure ASCII (py2) characters

The unique name of the pcell

Other Parameters
n_inputs: int and number > 0, locked

Number of input channels.

n_outputs: int and number > 0, locked

Number of output channels.

Parameters
sbend_straight: float and Real, number and number >= 0

length of the straight section in the S-bend

bend_angle: float

angle at which the directional coupler is bent

bend_angles1: tuple2

Input and output angle of the bends of arm 1. Defaults to bend_angle. If set, bend_angle will be ignored.

bend_angles2: tuple2

Input and output angle of the bends of arm 2. Defaults to bend_angle. If set, bend_angle will be ignored.

straight_after_bend: float and Real, number and number >= 0

length of the straight waveguide after the bend

reverse_bends: ( bool, bool_, bool or int )

If True, all bends will be reversed. This has only an effect on asymmetric bends, such as splines

reverse_individual_bends1a: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘bool’>

List of booleans to indicate whether the individual bends in arm1 should be reversed

reverse_individual_bends1b: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘bool’>

List of booleans to indicate whether the individual bends in arm1 should be reversed

reverse_individual_bends2a: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘bool’>

List of booleans to indicate whether the individual bends in arm2 should be reversed

reverse_individual_bends2b: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘bool’>

List of booleans to indicate whether the individual bends in arm2 should be reversed

view_name: String that contains only alphanumeric characters from the ASCII set or contains _$. ASCII set is extended on PY3.

The name of the view

coupler_spacing: float

Spacing between the two waveguide centerlines.

wg1a_shape: Shape

Shape for the south-west part of the waveguide

wg1b_shape: Shape

Shape for the south-east part of the waveguide

wg2a_shape: Shape

Shape for the north-west part of the waveguide

wg2b_shape: Shape

Shape for the north-east part of the waveguide

manhattan: ( bool, bool_, bool or int )

Adds rectangular blocks in the bends to avoid as much as possible non-manhattan angles.

angle_step: float and number > 0

Angle step for rounding.

bend_radius: float and number > 0

Bend radius for the auto-generated bends.

rounding_algorithm:

Rounding algorithm used to generate the bends. Can be circular, spline, ….
