OptiFDTD Fundamentals and Design Techniques


OptiFDTD Fundamentals and Design Techniques is a two-day course that provides a working introduction to the OptiFDTD technical computing environment. This course is intended for beginning and intermediate users, though even experienced users will benefit from seeing OptiSystem used by professional Optiwave trainers. No prior knowledge of Optiwave software is required. Themes of data analysis, visualization, modeling, and programming are explored throughout the course. Topics include:


  • Overview of the Finite-Difference Time-Domain Method
  • The OptiFDTD user interface
  • Applications for OptiFDTD simulations
  • The important of the mesh size and mesh size refinement
  • Design and visualization
  • Post-processing data analysis
  • Interpreting the data

Hands-on examples and exercises apply basic techniques to realistic problems in a variety of application areas.
