The term photonics can be used loosely to refer to a vast array of components, devices, and technologies that in some way involve manipulation of light. One of the most powerful numerical approaches available to engineers developing photonic components and devices is the Finite Element Method (FEM), which can be used to model and simulate such components/devices and analyze how they will behave in response to various outside influences. This resource provides a comprehensive description of the formulation and applications of FEM in photonics applications ranging from telecommunications, astronomy, and sensing, to chemistry, imaging, and biomedical R&D. This book emphasizes practical, problem-solving applications and includes real-world examples to assist readers in understanding how mathematical concepts translate to computer code for finite element-based methods applicable to a range of photonic structures. In addition, this is the perfect support to anyone using the COMSOL Multiphysics RF Module.
