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:

- Free EM Software at JPL.
- EM software list at the University of Missouri-Rolla.
- Numerical Electromagnetics Code archives
- FDTD-related sites at FDTD.org
