Verweij S, Liu V, Fan S. Accelerating simulation of ensembles of locally differing optical structures via a Schur complement domain decomposition. Opt Lett. 2014;39(22):6458-6461.
We present a Schur complement domain decomposition method that can significantly accelerate simulation of ensembles of locally differing optical structures. We apply the method to design a multi-spatial-mode photonic crystal waveguide splitter that exhibits high transmission and preservation of modal content, showing design acceleration by more than a factor of 20.
