The use of phase-change materials in integrated photonics applications has enabled the development of new types of all-optical devices, including multilevel photonic memories, arithmetic and logic processors and synaptic and neuron mimics. In order to design, optimise and understand the performance of large-scale systems, fast and accurate material and device models are needed. Here we present a behavioural model for phase-change photonic devices that can simulate the write, erase and readout operations in time spans compatible with system level performance evaluation.
