Company Profile

Optiwave Systems is an R&D company specializing in development and commercialization of scientific and engineering software for numerical simulation of integrated and fiber optic devices and systems. The company also renders contract services in scientific software development and design of photonic devices.


  • COMPUTER SOFTWARE AND SERVICES - OPTICS Optiwave Systems develops photonic design automation software that gives customers a distinct competitive advantage in developing components, links and systems for fiber optic telecommunications industry.

  • OptiGrating OptiGrating - Integrated & Fiber Optical Gratings Design Software is a software system for modeling integrated and fiber optical waveguide gratings. Applications include design of fiber Bragg gratings, WDM add-drop filters, gain flattening filters, dispersion compensation reflectors, etc. OptiGrating uses the Coupled Mode Theory to model the light and enable analysis and synthesis of gratings. A complex grating is approximated by a sequence of uniform segments, and analyzed by connecting the segments with the well-known Transfer Matrix Method. This gives the designer the information needed to test and optimize grating designs. ConnectIT Category Description: Development Tools Modelling / Simulation ConnectIT-keywords: software, modeling, optical gratings, fiber gratings, Bragg gratings.

  • OptiBPM OptiBPM - Waveguide Optics Modeling Software System is a software package for modeling integrated and fiber optical devices. It features a device layout editor with library of waveguides, numerical modeling with the Beam Propagation Method and mode solvers. Layout data can be exported in mask formats. Based on the Beam Propagation Method (BPM) of simulating light passage through any waveguide medium, OptiBPM allows designers to observe computer-simulated light field distribution and examine the radiation and the guided field, simultaneously. Reliably characterizing the beam facilitates computer-aided design of a variety of integrated and fiber optic guided wave problems. OptiBPM delivers significant new features, such as the ability to define and use anisotropic materials in layout designs and waveguide simulations. OptiBPM can improve design engineers’ productivity, reduce risk, and lower overall costs related to design of waveguide solutions. OptiBPM’s high-value functionality includes powerful integration capabilities with our award-winning optical communication system software, OptiSystem, and with Design Workshop’s dw-2000, a mask layout physical design and verification software. ConnectIT Category Description: CAD/CAM CAD/CAM ConnectIT-keywords: software, CAD, Beam Propagation Method, optics, photonics, modeling, optical waveguides, optical fibers.

  • OptiFiber OptiFiber - Optical Fiber Design Software is a powerful tool that blends numerical mode solvers for fiber modes with calculation models for fiber dispersion, losses, and Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD). This software is for engineers, scientists, and researchers who design fibers, fiber components, and optical communications systems. The optimal design of a given optical communication system depends directly on the choice of fiber parameters. OptiFiber uses numerical mode solvers and other models specialized to fibers for calculating dispersion, losses, birefringence, and PMD.

  • OptiSystem OptiSystem is a comprehensive software design suite that enables users to plan, test, and simulate optical links in the transmission layer of modern optical networks. The professional design environment of OptiSystem can simulate emerging PON technologies, such as the various optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) techniques for OCDMA-PON architectures. The robust simulation environment enables users to plan, test and simulate optical links in the physical layer of a variety of passive optical networks: BPON, EPON, GPON.

  • OptiFDTD OptiFDTD 9.0 is a powerful, highly integrated, and user friendly CAD environment that enables the design and simulation of advanced passive and non-linear photonic components. OptiFDTD enables you to design, analyze and test modern passive and nonlinear photonic components for wave propagation, scattering, reflection, diffraction, polarization and nonlinear phenomena. The core program of OptiFDTD is based on the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) algorithm with second-order numerical accuracy and the most advanced boundary conditions - Uniaxial Perfectly Matched Layer (UPML). The algorithm solves both electric and magnetic fields in temporal and spatial domain using the full-vector differential form of Maxwell's coupled curl equations. This allows for arbitrary model geometries and places no restriction on the material properties of the devices.

  • OptiSPICE The only SPICE software for Opto-Electronics OptiSPICE is the first circuit design software for analysis of integrated circuits including interactions of optical and electronic components. It allows for the design and simulation of opto-electronic circuits at the transistor level, from laser drivers to transimpedance amplifiers, optical interconnects and electronic equalizers. OptiSPICE produces self-consistent solutions of opto-electronic circuits that contain feedback spanning both optical and electrical parts. OptiSPICE is a fully-integrated solution for parameter extraction, schematic capture, circuit simulation and waveform analysis.
