JCMsuite solves optical resonance problems. Resonance problems are problems in 1D, 2D, or 3D where the refractive index geometry of resonating objects is given, and the angular frequencies ω and corresponding resonating fields have to be computed. No incident waves or interior sources are present.


We solve for pairs of E and ω or H and ω the time-harmonic Maxwell's curl-curl equation, e.g.,

Resonances H-equation

for a pair of H and ω.

Typical applications are the computation of cavity modes (e.g., for semiconductor lasers), plasmonic modes, photonic crystal band-structures, etc.
