High performance FDTD-method Maxwell solver for the design, analysis and optimization of nanophotonic devices, processes and materials.
FDTD Solutions is a high performance 3D FDTD-method Maxwell solver for the design, analysis and optimization of nanophotonic devices, processes and materials.
Key applications include:
- CMOS Image Sensors
- Solar Cells
- Integrated Optics
- Surface Metrology
- Surface Plasmons
- Photonic Crystals
- Liquid Crystals
On HPC2N we have FDTD available as a module on Kebnekaise.
FDTD_Solutions is only available on Kebnekaise.
To use the FDTD_Solutions module, first add it to your environment. Use:
module spider fdtd
to see which versions are available and how to load the module.
Example, loading FDTD Solutions version 8.16
You can read more about loading modules on our Accessing software with Lmod page and our Using modules (Lmod) page.
