OptiFiber 特色在于能够使用作为预测在设计时所想要达到的最佳化目标，例如：半径小但具有非零射散及最大模数的光纤。OptiFiber还具有支持汇入折射率变化及实验设备之功能，例如：EXFO s NR-9200光纤分析仪，可将由实验量测到的折射率输入至OptiFiber进行分析。
The optimal design of a given optical communication system depends directly on the choice of fiber parameters. OptiFiber uses numerical mode solvers and other models specialized to fibers for calculating dispersion, losses, birefringence, and PMD.
Meshless Mode Solvers for LP and Vector Modes: Optical fibers may consist of an arbitrary number of concentric layers of lossless materials, and graded index fibers can be approximated using a sequence of constant index layers. OptiFiber 2.2 mode solvers find an exact solution based on matching boundary conditions at layer boundaries instead of relying on meshes to approximate the structure.
These advanced mode solvers should be especially useful for multimode fiber calculations, where there are many modes in the spectrum.
Another advantage of the meshless mode solver is the calculation of fields far from the fiber. Meshing introduces finite difference errors of a certain level, and fields weaker than the differencing error cannot be calculated. The meshless mode solvers, on the other hand, have the correct asymptotic behavior far from the fiber, and can calculate fields of magnitude 10-15 or less.
This feature is in addition to the existing mode solvers in OptiFiber.
Propagation over Distance:OptiFiber allows users to decompose an arbitrary field into the modes of a multimode fiber. It calculates the complex coefficients of the modes for the arbitrary field. Similarly, given the amplitude of a set of modes, OptiFiber can display the sum (composition of modes).
OptiFiber 2.2 can also calculate this multimode field after propagating down the fiber by a specified distance. The user enters a distance. Each of the complex coefficients of the mod
