Abstract

The development of a state of the art numerical simulator based on beam propagation method (BPM) is discussed. A mixed edge-node full vectorial finite element method (VFEM) is proposed for the numerical simulation of active microstructured fibers. The features of this simulator include mixed edge-node full VFE-BPM; accurate treatment of curved surfaces for finite differences and a propagator based on numerical Laplace transform (NLT). The development of an algorithm for optimal parameter selection and automatic error control is also discussed. The main difficulty in the development of a VFE-BPM is the instability due to the presence of complex modes.
