An eigenmode solver for open electromagnetic resonantors

Project description


A Method of Moments (Boundary Element Method) code designed to find the modes of open resonators such as meta-atoms (the building blocks of metamaterials), (nano) antennas, scattering particles etc. Using these modes, broadband models of these elements can be created, enabling excitation, coupling between them and scattering to be solved easily.


The techniques used in this package, and the scientific results obtained, are described in the following publications and presentations:


Documentation is hosted on Read the Docs


A docker image is available which contains the OpenModes, all required packages, the Jupyter web-based notebook interface and example notebooks.

See the installation instructions for full details of how to install OpenModes via docker, or directly onto your machine.

The source is available on GitHub, and binary packages are available from the Python Package Index.


This program was written by David Powell, a Senior Lecturer with the School of Engineering and Information Technology at the University of New South Wales, Canberra Campus.
