Analysis and Optimization with Wannier Basis Gradients," in
Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Quantum Electronics and Laser
Science and Photonic Applications Systems Technologies, Technical
Digest (CD) (Optical Society of America, 2005), paper QWD5.
We present a powerful
photonic crystal device sensitivity analysis and optimization method
utilizing efficient matrix techniques. We optimize the performance of a
compact (8.2x13.3um) waveguide mode demux with the method. FDTD
simulations validated the design.
