Ansys Lumerical MQW

Analyze complex band structure, gain, and spontaneous emission across multi-quantum well architectures.



MQW Gain

Engineers can effectively measure band structure, gain, and spontaneous emission in multi-quantum well devices thanks to Ansys Lumerical MQW, which simulates quantum mechanical activity in atomically thin semiconductor layers.

Additionally, MQW offers a fully-coupled k.p approach calculation of the quantum mechanical band structure.



Dynamic Laser Simulation & Modeling

Produce dynamic laser models that incorporate tuning and outside feedback effects into account, simulate and extract important TWLM (Travelling Wave Laser Model) parameters, and analyze steady-state and transient laser performance.

The design and manufacture of MQW lasers are typically complex and expensive; hence, simulations can speed up development and provide information on design factors.

Additionally, when the parameters are changed, measured curves and simulated power curves can be contrasted.

It is possible to closely analyze issues like nonradiative recombination and self-heating that affect how well the simulated laser works.



Mesoscopic Superconductivity

Engineers utilizing MQW can use the time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations to numerically solve the mesoscopic superconducting ring constructions (through finite-element analysis).

Mimic the dynamic behavior of complex magnetic vortices in the semiconductor for a given applied magnetic field.

Users can also look into the many vortex configurations, pinpoint the best vortex states using the two stable vortex shells in the mesoscopic superconducting ring.

And finally, assess the improved photonic surface superconductivity.
