Finite Element Method for Photonics
One of the most powerful numerical approaches available to engineers developing photonic components and devices is the finite element method (FEM), which can be used to model and simulate such components/devices and analyze how they will behave in response to various outside influences.
This new course program provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of FEM in photonics devices. With an emphasis on practical, problem-solving applications and real-world examples, engineers will understand how mathematical concepts translate to computer code finite-element-based methods.
This course program includes the following courses:
- Introduction to Numerical Methods
- The Basics of Finite Element Method
- Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of multilayer stacks/anti-reflection coatings
- Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of optical waveguides and fiber
- Applications of Finite Element Method: Modelling of optical fibers and Photonic Crystal Fibers
Audience: This course program is an ideal complement for anyone using the COMSOL Multiphysics RF Module.
