MIT Photonic Bands

http://ab-initio.mit.edu/mpb/
MIT Photonic Bands (MPB) computes the band structures (dispersion relations) and electromagnetic modes of periodic dielectric structures, and is applicable both to photonic crystals (photonic band-gap materials) and other optical problems. Its features include: fully-vectorial, 3D computations; a flexible user-interface based upon the GNU Guile scripting language; output in HDF format; and iterative, targeted eigensolver methods to address very large problems by solving for only a few states near a specified frequency.
