class picazzo3.wg.spirals.cell.DoubleSpiralWithInCoupling

Double spiral class with both access waveguides on the outside of the spiral. In coupling waveguides are added to the spiral, one at the east side and one at the west side. The trace template provided in the property trace_template is used to build a chain of waveguides.

n_o_loops: int and number > 0

Number of loops in the spiral

trace_template: PCell and _TraceTemplate

Trace template used in the chain.

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_o_traces: int and number > 0, locked

Total number of traces used in the spiral.

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


class Layout
incoupling_length: float and Real, number and number >= 0

length of the incoupling section.

flatten: ( bool, bool_, bool or int )

If true the instances are flattened

shapes: list

List of shapes used to build the traces

inner_size: Coord2 and number >= 0

Inner size of the the spiral, defaults to 3 * spacing + 2 * bend_radius, in each direction

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

spacing between the individual loops.

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

stub_direction: List with value restriction, allowed values: [‘H’, ‘V’]
Other Parameters
spiral_center: locked
auto_transform: locked
