class picazzo3.wg.grating.cell.ModifiedWaveguideGratingPeriod

Period for a waveguide with modified parameters. The base definition is taken from the wg_template which is used for the ports. The modify_waveguide_parameters property then creates the blocks with modified widths, by adapting the properties of the individual waveguide template.

modified_waveguide_parameters: list

Dict of the parameters of the waveguide template that should be modified for the different sections of the Grating Period.

n_o_sections: int and number > 0

Number of sections in the grating period

wg_template: PCell and _WaveguideTemplate

Waveguide template of start and end of the period (and ports)

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
wg_templates: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘ipkiss3.pcell.cell.pcell.PCell’>, locked


class Layout
section_lengths: list<number >= 0>

List of lengths for the waveguide templates

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

Length of the grating period.

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


"""In this example we build a grating from a modified slot waveguide.
Starting from the basic slot waveguide template, we define grating period sections
with different slot width and core width.
