Abstract
In this paper, we present an optimization method for passive components such as straight waveguides, Y-couplers or microring resonators, in order to design optical interconnects and networks. We show that the optical interconnects used in telecommunication applications may also be used in photonic integrated circuits, especially in the case of parallel computing networks. In a first approach, we have taken an interest in modal constant propagation in order to describe signal transmission in integrated optical devices. In a second approach, FDTD simulations of Y-couplers have allowed us to optimize the shape of such devices, and to establish a behavioral model for a single-mode coupler. Moreover, a link between VHDL-AMS and the FDTD algorithm has been prosed in order to overcome problems encountered in the description of propagation phenomena at device and layout level.
