FDTD Solutions 8.0

Lumerical Solutions has announced the release of FDTD Solutions 8.0, the nanophotonic design environment based on the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) technique.

Release 8.0 extends the material modelling capabilities to include liquid crystals and other spatially-varying anisotropic materials. It also has a Flexible Material Plugin (FMP) framework that enables researchers to model a wide variety of other materials, including nonlinear, magneto-optical and saturable gain materials.
