## Current revision

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
- 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.
