How do I export the mode profile from MODE Solutions to INTERCONNECT? Could this mode profile be visualized in INTERCONNECT?


#2

In order to export the mode profile, you have to Calculate Modes and do a frequency sweep in MODE Solutions with the “track selected mode”, “detailed dispersion calculation” and “store mode profile while tracking” selected. Then in the “options” drop-down menu, select “Data Export” and select “Export for INTERCONNECT”. The exported ldf file can then be loaded to the “MODE Waveguide” element in INTERCONNECT. The mode profile can be visualized in INTERCONNECT by using the “Mode Profile Analyzer”. Please refer to the following KB page of how to create a “MODE Waveguide” element:
