|The Source-Model Technique Package (SMTP) is a free MATLAB
toolbox for modal analysis of optical waveguides, based on the
Source-Model Technique. It was developed by
Amit Hochman during the course
of graduate studies with
Yehuda Leviatan at
the EE Dept.,
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology.
|The SMTP uses a fully vectorial
|It can handle high index contrasts and
dispersive media. Permittivity models for Silica and noble metals are
|It can handle arbitrary (but smooth)
|It has a Graphical User Interface (screen
|It accepts a binary image of cross-section
as input. Alternatively, the input can be defined by Matlab
7.x with the 'spline' and 'image processing' toolboxes installed.
