Coupling Other Software Programs to ASAP for Modeling Nonlinear Optical Components
Updated: Mar 04, 2015
Author(s): Breault Research Organization
This technical publication describes a practical application in which the Advanced Systems Analysis Program (ASAP®) from Breault Research Organization (BRO) interacts with other computer software to provide a system solution. Capabilities of ASAP and Mathematica® from Wolfram are merged to simulate the performance of a nonlinear optical material using methodology applicable in a general sense to any optical layout. The user-defined field input capability in ASAP gives you flexibility to model characteristics of non-ideal sources, and facilitates the exchange of data with Mathematica. Commands that are encountered realizing the model are: FIELD, DECOMPOSE, DISPLAY, $SYS, and $FAST.
