SimphoSOFT logo

SimphoSOFT software is ideal for modeling and optimizing photoactive materials for applications, including:
lasers & amplifiers (photokinetics of rare earth materials),
2-photon microscopy, STED microscopy,
flow cytometry,
Searchable multi-photon absorber database
and more

SimphoSOFT energy levels etc
With SimphoSOFT's graphical user interface it is easy to create complex energy level diagrams of arbitrary size, that include:
• Singlet and triplet states
• Two-photon and three-photon absorption
• Energy transfer, upconversion
• Cross relaxation

Rate equations are built in to SimphoSOFT, and they are updated automatically based on the diagram designed by user in the GUI.
Accurate numerical analysis without programming

Z-scan for Material Characterization
SimphoSOFT simulates Z-scan experiments for determining nonlinear absorption and nonlinear index of refraction changes in materials.
  • Applications include: optical limiting, multi-photon
    polymerization and optical switching
  • Save money and time while accurately simulating
    experimental results without programming
  • Analyze both low-energy and high-energy laser inputs
  • Optimize absorption strength of optical limiters
  • Simulate both thin and thick samples
  • Kerr effect
  • No restrictions on energy levels - three or more can be
  • Numerical solution of the coupled propagation and
    and rate equations which is more accurate than
    analytical approximation
