Short Business Description

Software manufacturer that provides services for the simulation, analysis and optimization of photonic and nano-optical devices.

General information

Company profile

JCMwave GmbH, based in Berlin, was founded in 2002 as a spin-off of the Zuse Institute Berlin. With its 8 employees, the company focuses on the development of software and numerical technologies for photonic and nano-optical applications.

JCMwave collaborates closely with academic partners such as the Zuse Institute Berlin or the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt in order to continuously incorporate leading edge research results into its software. This enables the simulation and analysis of complex optical systems with high accuracy and speed.

Products & Services

JCMsuite is a software package for the simulation of complex photonic and nano-optical systems. It combines efficient and accurate finite-element solvers for electromagnetism, continuum mechanics and heat conduction. Machine learning technologies enable rapid optimization and analysis of optical device properties.

References and export activities

JCMwave has an international costumer base with a focus in Europe and the United States. Moreover, we are regularly partners in EU-funded research and development projects, including also projects with Israel.

Target group

JCMsuite is used by companies, universities, and academic institutions with applications in, e.g., lithography, metrology, waveguides and fibers, photovoltaics, light sources, and nanostructured materials.

Competitive advantages

JCMsuite includes a highly accurate and efficient FEM solver with a strong focus on nanophotonic applications. Specialized machine learning technologies enable a fast analysis and optimization of systems based on few FEM simulations. Both technologies can drastically decrease the simulation-driven development time of nanophotonic devices.
