The Element Library in INTERCONNECT includes an extensive list of pre-defined photonic integrated circuit elements, including optical sources, measurement elements, and both passive and active optoelectronic devices. In addition, custom PIC elements can be defined with analytic or imported s-parameter representations via Lumerical’s script language or MATLAB.
There are 3 types of PIC elements supported by INTERCONNECT:
Pre-defined elements that are provided by INTERCONNECT's element library.
"Group" elements created from primitive elements.
Custom elements that can be defined with analytic or imported s-parameter representations.
Custom compact models that can be used for design kits.
