    Abstract

    A new simulation tool called ‘Aurora’, 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.
