Capstone Project Advances Silicon Photonics Simulation

Designing and fabricating computer chips takes a lot of time and money. Chip designers alleviate as much of this expense as they can by using modeling tools to ensure the chips that reach the fabrication and testing phase have a high likelihood of success. Simulation enables designers to model device operations before sending their designs to fabrication. The capstone team of Phoung Tran, Trammy Nguyen and Shiju Liang developed a software tool to make the modeling of photonic circuits easier, a huge advantage in a young and vital industry.
