Optical fibre system simulator

Project description

Pyofss allows construction of an optical fibre system from separate modules. A typical system consists of a Gaussian pulse generator module and an optical fibre module. The field generated is propagated through the fibre by numerical integration of an appropriate Schrödinger-type equation. Resulting field profiles may be plotted, including map and waterfall plots of the propagation.



Some of the following commands may require superuser privileges. Use:

$ sudo command


$ su root

then run the commands.

Always be cautious when running with enhanced privileges!

Pyofss is available on Pypi and may be retrieved using the pip program:

$ aptitude install pip
$ pip install pyofss
Then import pyofss within scripts or in an interactive session:
>>> from pyofss import *


If the required dependencies are not satisfied when installing pyofss, then manually install using either:

$ aptitude install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib


$ pip install numpy scipy matplotlib

The recommended versions are listed in the “requirements.txt” file within the pyofss package. Using this file, it is possible to automatically install all dependencies:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
