Accurate modeling of photonic devices is essential for the development of new, higher performance optical components required by current and future high-bandwidth communications systems. This paper reviews several key techniques for such modeling, many of which are used in commercial design tools. These include several mode-solving techniques, the beam propagation method, the method of lines, and the finite-difference time-domain technique.
