This course introduces the Lumerical Discontinuous-Galerkin Time-Domain (DGTD) solver for optical simulations, one of the four solvers in the finite-element IDE. It is primarily intended for beginner to intermediate users, with a focus on providing practical examples to common tasks. You will learn the basic solver physics and how to use various simulation objects in a typical workflow - simulation setup, running simulations, and post-processing and visualizing results.
- Basic understanding of electromagnetics theory.
Lectures and demos. A major emphasis is placed on balanced mix of basic theoretical knowledge and helpful practical examples that will allow new users to quickly become proficient and productive with FDE.
