Re: Optical Simulation: FOCSS
Jonathan and Dave
I have come across software called COMSIS 8 at www.ipsis.com, which deals
with laser chirp and non linearities as well. Hopefully you know some French.
Optisim made by www.artis-software.com has CW Lorenztzian laser source and
rate equation laser source.
The above software only handles single mode lasers and fibers.
