Photonics Simulation with COMSOL Multiphysics®

08 Jun 2017 Sponsored by COMSOL

If you are interested in learning about photonics simulation using the COMSOL Multiphysics® software, then watch this webinar.

Photonics (the generation, detection and manipulation of light) plays a fundamental role in modern technology. It is used in a wide range of applications, such as telecommunications, medicine, computing and manufacturing.

During this webinar, we discuss using COMSOL Multiphysics® for photonics simulations, in particular periodic structures and crystals. We show how modelling can provide insight into the design and characterization of photonic devices. This includes solving for the propagation of electromagnetic waves, even in the presence of wavelength-dependent material properties, as well as multiphysics effects such as heating or mechanical loading.

Presenter: Simone Zonetti, Applications Engineer, COMSOL
Simone Zonetti joined COMSOL in 2016 as an applications engineer, specializing in high-frequency electromagnetics. He received his PhD from the Universite Catholique de Louvain in 2012, with a thesis on the quantization of the cosmological constant. His previous experience includes research in quantum gravity and glaciology.
