Free nanophotonics software

From AbInitio

The following is a list of free/open source computational software for nanophotonic and electromagnetic modelling.

  • Meep — our finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) package
  • MPB — our electromagnetic eigenmode solver
  • CAMFR — transfer-matrix/RCWA (via eigenmode expansion) package
  • S4 — transfer-matrix/RCWA (via Fourier-basis eigenmode expansion) package
  • FDTD code from the Imperial College at London
  • RadarFDTD, another free FDTD code
  • Tessa, another free FDTD code
  • SMTP, an integral-equation solver for waveguides

Feel free to email me if you have any other free photonis software to suggest. Please do not suggest shareware, "demo versions" of closed-source programs, etcetera — we're only going to list free-as-in-freedom software, not free-as-in-beer.

Other lists of free (and semi-free, and proprietary) electromagnetic programs include:
