For many optical applications, materials are needed with anisotropic or nonlinear properties, for example birefringence and dichroism. Three examples are presented of the application of special optical materials in integrated components. The direct numerical simulations with CST Studio Suite® help to understand the underlying mechanisms and demonstrate side effects not predicted by simplified theories.
In this whitepaper, learn about:
- Birefringent and dichroic materials
- How strong anisotropy can suppress substrate leakage of ring resonators and wave guides
- Magneto-optically active materials that can rotate the polarization of an optical wave
- How the refractive index for Kerr media becomes dependent on the optical intensity
