Fan Group Open-Source Software for Nanophotonics

Our group develops numerical methods to simulate and analyze photonic structures of various kinds. We endeavor to release these as open-source software packages for the broader research community, once they have reached a reasonably complete stage in their development. Here are some packages available for use under the GNU GPL:

S4 - Stanford Stratified Structure Solver: S4 is a frequency domain code to solve layered periodic structures. Internally, it uses Rigorous Coupled Wave Analysis (RCWA; also called the Fourier Modal Method (FMM)) and the S-matrix algorithm.
