Re: Optical Simulation: FOCSS


I looked at the web site and it seems to be a typical
numerical simulator with a couplie of exceptions.  It
seems to be set up for multilevel modulation and it 
seems to have some sort of noise model, since RIN
is one of the input parameters.  However, since the
linewidth enhancement factor is NOT listed as an 
input parameter, it may not deal with chirp.  There
are several modulator options so I'm guessing that it
is meant to model a system in which the laser is running
cw and the modulator is external.
