 Photobears - SPIE/OSA/IEEE Photonics Student Chapter at Berkeley

The Berkeley SPIE/OSA/IEEE Photonics student chapter is hosting a half-day workshop on open-source computational electromagnetics. Interactive, hands-on sessions will introduce participants to setting up and launching electromagnetic simulations using the state-of-the-art finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) software package Meep, originally developed at MIT. Meep supports a wide range of electromagnetic design and modeling. No prior experience is required.
Participants are required to bring their laptops and will be guided through several tutorial examples involving (1) preparing simulation models, (2) deploying them using cluster computing via Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and (3) post-processing the results using Python and Matlab/Octave. The examples will be based on topics relevant to current photonics research. Also, the instructor will be available after the workshop to further assist participants with the simulation tools. This event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be provided.
