Optiwave Systems Inc. has released version 6.0 of its OptiFDTD software suite for the design and simulation of photonic and biophotonic components. The package focuses on the finite-difference time-domain method of designing and applying photonic crystals, components and nanoscale devices. Version 6.0 offers such features as the ability to assign point sources within a design environment and to facilitate symmetric or periodic layouts using the periodic boundary condition. It also provides automation functions that enable the creation of custom scripts and the execution of time-saving operations.
