Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of optical waveguides and fibers
In this module, we will use an example that builds on a previous module: how to model optical fibres and obtain their modal properties in commercial FE software with variation in wavelength/frequency of operation. The inclusion of dispersion and calculation of derived quantities (from the field) such as mode field area, effective area etc. will be discussed in this module.
