Comsol will present a workshop on how to use its Comsol Multiphysics software for photonics simulations; in particular, periodic structures and crystals. The company will show how modelling can provide insight into the design and characterisation of photonic devices. This includes solving for the propagation of electromagnetic waves, even in the presence of wavelength-dependent material properties, as well as multiphysics effects like heating or mechanical loading.

Comsol Multiphysics is an integrated software environment for creating physics-based models and simulation apps. A particular strength is its ability to account for coupled or multiphysics phenomena.

Comsol is a global provider of simulation software for product design and research to technical enterprises, research labs, and universities. Its analysis tools cover applications including optics and photonics, RF and microwave, semiconductor processes, molecular flow, and MEMS, to name a few.
