Computational Photonics


  • finding solutions to those equations that describe the properties of light and its interaction with matter in a numerical sense
  • computational methods are often essential to understand actual experiments
  • simplify the design of optical materials and functional devices prior to any fabricatio
  • theoretical lectures and hands-on training using different software package
  • methods that solve rigorously Maxwell’s equations
  • The methods and tools we discuss, therefore, can be applied to systems, where wave optical properties are important
  • combination of internal and external scientific and industrial experts that will offer theoretical lectures and hands-on training
  • gain a solid knowledge of the basics of computational photonics and competences to solve a large variety of different problems
  • the acquired knowledge will help in your everyday research
