We are also grateful to Prof. J. D. Joannopoulos for his continuing support and advice in this and all our endeavors.
Alejandro Rodriguez was a patient early beta tester of many features.
We are also grateful to the authors of earlier Fortran FDTD programs that were used in our group, which were invaluable as benchmarks in testing our new code. This includes a 2d FDTD code by Jerry Chen, with later improvements by Shanhui Fan, SGJ, and others. There was also a 3d code initially written by Shanhui Fan, with later improvements by Daniel Abrams, Doug Allan, SGJ, Chiyan Luo, and Elefterios Lidorikis.
