Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of optical fibers and Photonic Crystal Fibers
In this module we move from guided wave structures to the use of S parameters for calculating Reflection/Transmission at interfaces and ports. This has application in multiple fields. We will through 4 examples cover simple Fresnel reflection to anti reflection coatings, polar dielectric layers and plasmonic structures.
What you will learn:
- Build a model for optical fibers and photonic crystal fibers
- Explain the concept of S parameters
- Compute reflection and transmission from optical interfaces
