Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of multilayer stacks/anti-reflection coatings
In this module, we will use a popular example that has multiple applications: how to model optical waveguides starting with planar/slab waveguides, and including simple step index fibres and obtain their modal properties (e.g. effective indices) in commercial FE software.
