WaveguideSideGratingPeriod

class picazzo3.wg.grating.cell.WaveguideSideGratingPeriod

Period for a waveguide with side gratings. The base definition is taken from the wg_template which is used for the ports. The widths property then creates the blocks with modified widths, based on the original. (another parameter can be adapted by changing the property width_parameter_name)

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

Views

class Layout
Parameters
relative_widths: ( bool, bool_, bool or int )

If True, the values of the width are relative to the original value.

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

Name of the property of the waveguide template that is to be adjusted by the values in ‘widths’.

widths: list<Real, number>

The modified widths of the waveguide core. If ‘relative_widths’ is True, the values are relative to the original core width. It is also possible to adjust another parameter than ‘core_width’ by overriding the ‘width_parameter_name’.

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
