title = "'Aurora'-a time domain based meta-algorithm for the rapid simulation and design of complex optical circuits",

abstract = "A new simulation tool called {\textquoteleft}Aurora{\textquoteright}, specifically developed to efficiently simulate highly complex optical devices such as OADMs and Routers based on (higher order)microring resonators, is presented. The meta-simulation algorithm used by Aurora creates a framework in which many different simulation algorithms can be properly combined rather than providing a simulation algorithm itself. The calculations of this program use a simple scheme based in the time domain from which the frequency response can easily be derived. Simulation results of a 4-port OADM and waveguide gratings show excellent agreement when compared to experimentally obtained measurement data and conventional simulation methods.",
