Simphony: A Simulator for Photonic circuits

Development version PyPI Version PyPI - Python Version Build Status pre-commit Documentation Status License Latest Commit

Simphony, a simulator for photonic circuits, is a fundamental package for designing and simulating photonic integrated circuits with Python.

Key Features:

  • Free and open-source software provided under the MIT License
  • Completely scriptable using Python 3.
  • Cross-platform: runs on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
  • Subnetwork growth routines
  • A simple, extensible framework for defining photonic component compact models.
  • A SPICE-like method for defining photonic circuits.
  • Complex simulation capabilities.
  • Included model libraries from SiEPIC and SiPANN.

Developed by CamachoLab at Brigham Young University.


Simphony can be installed via pip using Python 3:

python3 -m pip install simphony

Please note that Python 2 is not supported. With the official deprecation of Python 2 (January 1, 2020), no future compatability is planned.


The documentation is hosted online.

Changelogs can be found in docs/changelog/. There is a changelog file for each released version of the software.
