Following the links below you can download a free demo-version of
SimuLase™ as well as its full manual and a quick-start guide.
You can download a description of real life examples of how
SimuLase can be used to design, analyze and optimize e.g. edge-emitting devices and VECSELs.
You can also download a demo GainDatabase, a corresponding structure file and
some experimentally measured photo luminescence data that allow to reproduce the
example of an edge emitting structure discussed in the examples-guide.
Please note that the demo version of SimuLase™ is restricted to AlGaAs material and
the specific AlInGaAsP-materials included in the edge-emitting example structure.
To download and install the demo version of SimuLase click the appropriate
A dialog box should appear. Click OK to the option "Open with the default application
(CompressedFolder)". Once the file has been downloaded a filemanager window should appear.
Click on the file "SimuLaseTrial.msi" and follow the usual installation instructions appearing afterwards.
If you have an older demo-version of SimuLase™ installed, the installation process might
ask you to uninstall that version first. To do so select "Start | Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs"
on your Windows machine,
highlight "SimuLaseTrial" and click "Remove".
Once you have successfully installed the program the "SimuLase"-icon,
, should appear on your desktop.
Click on it to start the program.
For a description of SimuLase's features and functionality, including detailed real live examples for the
modeling of edge-emitter and VECSEL devices,
see the full manual below. The Quick-Start-Guide gives a brief introduction into the
functionality of SimuLase. You can also download just the description of the use of
SimuLase for real life examples below. These files can also be accessed through the "Help"-menu in the program.
