Mode Solvers for Microstructured or Photonic Crystal Fibers
CUDOS MOF Utilities
Free software developed and can be licensed by CUDOS/University of Sydney group.
The CUDOS MOF Utilities are a software package to compute and analyze the modes of microstructured optical fibers (MOFs), also called photonic crystal fibers.
- The CUDOS MOF Utilities use the multipole method to compute the modes.
- The first public release of the CUDOS MOF Utilities can deal with inclusions/holes with circular cross-sections in a homogeneous, isotropic matrix surrounded by an optional cladding and jacket.
- Elliptic inclusions/holes, hexagonal cores, or other non-circular inclusions can not be simulated.
- Holes should not intersect or touch each other.
- MOF modes
- Dispersion curves
- Mode field distribution
- Structural losses
- Mode effective area
- A mode's Bloch transform or Wijngaard test

Source-Model Technique Package (SMTP)
Free software developed by Professor Yehuda Leviatan's group (Technion).
The SMTP is a code for modal analysis of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) and other dielectric waveguides.
- Source model technique is implemented
- Mode calculations in dielectric cylindrical structures that have a piecewise-homogeneous, yet otherwise arbitrary, cross-section
- Modeling of PCFs with arbitrary shaped inclusions/holes
- Written in MATLAB 7.x
- Includes an easy to use graphical user interface
- High index contrasts and dispersive media can be handled
- Permittivity models for silica and noble metals are included
- The input can be defined either by a Matlab code or as a binary image of the cross-section
- PCF modes
- Phase effective index
- Group-velocity dispersion
- Anisotropic PCFs
