Introduction - Lesson 1

Example Device

In this video, we will consider a Silicon-On-Insulator (or SOI) rib waveguide to demonstrate the general workflow of the Lumerical FDE solver.

When to Use FDE

Lumerical MODE includes three solvers: FDE, EME, and varFDTD. In this video, we will focus on the FDE solver, which can be used to characterize the supported modes of waveguides.


Basic Workflow

A typical workflow in the Lumerical FDE consists of setting up and running simulations and analyzing results. In this video, we will demonstrate the key steps of the workflow using an SOI rib waveguide example.
