Welcome to the first special issue of Applied Optics on computer-aided design for optoelectronic systems. This special issue stemmed from our realization of the need for dialogue between optoelectronic system designers and computer-aided-design developers, as well as from the realization that various research groups are developing or, in some instances, have already developed and commercialized such tools. Our goal for this special issue is to enhance this type of dialogue by showing to the optoelectronic system design community the current state of optoelectronic computer-aided-design tools.
