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


Requires the python packages numpy, scipy and matplotlib, and the free meshing program gmsh. See the installation instructions for full requirements.

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


This program was written by David Powell, a researcher at the Nonlinear Physics Centre at the Australian National University. Contact details are available on my web page.
