The idea of using light for transferring data has been developed rapidly since 1960s. Today, using light for short-distance communication, as an alternative for copper wires, is rapidly growing mostly because of its broadband communication characteristics. Optical communication systems consist of both electronic and photonic components. Designing such systems will benefit from an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) to co-simulate electrooptical subsystem efficiently and accurately. In this project, an IDE will be developed to connect two cutting-edge software packages in these domains: Cadence tool in electronics with Lumerical tool in photonics. Software prototypes will be developed and efficient algorithms/methods will be investigated and implemented to make this integration efficient, accurate and easy to use for the electro-optical designers.
