We developed a semi-analytical simulation tool in Python for arrayed waveguide gratings(AWG) integrated with our mask design framework. Our simulation model calculates the transmission matrices of all the parts of AWG using the most suitable tools for different structures.This framework allows us to design, simulate and finally fabricate using the same script. Simulation results of our semi-analytical model are very similar to the experimental results. This framework allows us to use a cyclic work flow between design, simulation and fabrication for improved AWG.
