Can I import GDSII files into a simulation? If so, where can I find instructions and examples?



Can I import structures defined in a GDSII file to LUMERICAL solvers? How can I do this?


Yes, you can import structure geometry information from GDSII files. The best resource is our online knowledge base, where you’ll find a detailed description of the GDSII import feature, example files, and the associated script functions. It is also worth noting that GDSII export is also possible.
