WaveguideSectionsGratingPeriod

class picazzo3.wg.grating.cell.WaveguideSectionsGratingPeriod

waveguide grating period consisting of concatenated waveguide sections. At the logical level, the waveguides are connected using WaveguideReflectors, which result in a model based on simple Fresnel reflection.

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

List of waveguide templates that make up a 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

Views

class Layout
Parameters
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
