1. Multi-mode interferometer (MMI)

In this tutorial, you will learn how to design, simulate and optimize a 1x2 multi-mode interferometer (MMI) in three steps:

  1. The first step is writing the PCell, starting from the layout of the MMI.
  2. Then, a circuit model is added to the MMI PCell.
  3. Last, the MMI is simulated and optimized using CAMFR, the built-in 2D EME propagation simulation tool in IPKISS.
