Get Started

In this course, we will learn how to run the Ansys Lumerical FDE solver, use the built-in analysis options, get results using the scripting language, and export results. We will also discuss convergence testing for verifying result accuracy. By the end of this course, you will be able to understand the difference between layout and analysis modes, calculate modes of straight and bent waveguides using the FDE solver, know how to use the data analysis group, understand the difference between the integrated frequency sweep tool and the general parameter sweep tool, plot and export results, explain what convergence testing is and why it is necessary, and know where to find information about script commands used for FDE analysis.

In this course, we will demonstrate the workflow for setting up an Ansys Lumerical FDE simulation to find the supported modes of a waveguide and analyze the frequency response of the modes. We will learn what types of devices and applications can be simulated using the FDE solver, and the types of results that can be obtained using the analysis tools.

In this course, we will learn about the material database and how to add new materials. We will also learn when broadband material fits need to be generated and how to check material fits. By the end of this course, you will be able to add new materials to the material database, know when broadband material fits need to be used, check material fits in the material explorer, and know where to find more information on the material models.

In this course, we will learn about the properties that are set in the Ansys Lumerical FDE solver region and mesh override regions. The FDE solver region is where the solver region geometry, mesh and boundary conditions can be set.
