Photon Design was started in 1992 and now provides a wide range of innovative photonics CAD tools to 35 countries around the world, supplying most of the World's leading photonics companies, universities and government research labs. CAD products include tools for both passive and active (semiconductor) component and optical circuit modelling.
The company has a team of the brightest people in photonics modelling, developing innovative solutions for tomorrow's photonics design projects.
Our tools are used in over 30 countries around the World, by 100s of industrial and academic research centres. Our products include FIMMPROP - our industry-leading bi-directional optical propagation tool; FIMMWAVE - a 3D mode solver, widely recognised as the most accurate; OmniSim - a 3D Maxwell solver for wide angle optical propagation featuring FDTD, FETD, RCWA, FEFD; PICWave - an advanced laser diode, SOA and photonic integrated circuit (PIC) simulator capable of modelling both active and passive circuits, even tuneable lasers; Epipprop – an advanced tool for 3D simulation of AWGs and Echelle gratings.
