Authors: Björn C. P. Sturmberg, Kokou B. Dossou, Felix J. Lawrence, Christopher G. Poulton, Ross C. McPhedran, C. Martijn de Sterke, Lindsay C. Botten | ||

Program title: EMUstack | ||

Catalogue identifier: AEZI_v1_0Distribution format: tar.gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 202(2016)276 | ||

Programming language: Python, Fortran. | ||

Computer: Any computer with a Unix-like system with Python, a Fortran compiler and F2Py [1]. Also required are the following free libraries LAPACK and BLAS [2], UMFPACK [3]. Developed on 1.6 GHz Intel Core i7. | ||

Operating system: Any Unix-like system; developed on Ubuntu 14.04 (using Linux kernel 3.16). | ||

RAM: Problem dependent; specifically on the resolution of the FEM mesh and the number of modes included. The given example uses approximately 100 MB. | ||

Keywords: Finite Element Method, Scattering Matrix Method, Bloch modes. | ||

Classification: 10. | ||

External routines: Required are the following free libraries LAPACK and BLAS [2], UMFPACK [3]. Optionally exploits additional commercial software packages: Intel MKL [4], Gmsh [5]. | ||

Nature of problem:Time-harmonic electrodynamics in layered media. | ||

Solution method:Finite element method and the scattering matrix method. | ||

Running time:Problem dependent (typically about 3 s per wavelength including plane wave orders ≤ 3). | ||
