Get Your Hands on SiPh Device Simulation and Fabrication
SPHPC19 hosts a “Luncheon with Lumerical” session, included in SPHPC registration, during which attendees will learn about Lumerical tools’ new capability for Photonics Inverse Design, using two techniques: parametric shape based and topology optimization. Using Lumerical tools, which will be made available to SPHPC19 attendees during this session, an example design will be discussed that can be modified to create an optimal design using Photonic Inverse Design. As an added bonus at no cost to SPHPC19 attendees, you will be able to submit your design for fabrication by Electron-Beam Lithography Facility at University of British Columbia (UBC).
