In recent years, the optoelectronics industry has encountered a dramatic increase in demand for high-performance devices. Advanced design software is needed to develop new components that meet the challenging requirements. Modern technology computer aided design (TCAD) tools can help to analyze and to optimize device performance. This shortens the product design cycle, saving time and money. Active research includes the efficient numerical solution of the device equations as well as the correct modeling of material properties. Ease of use, accuracy, and flexibility are often decisive factors for the acceptance of design tools in an industrial environment.
