a suite of numerical algorithms used in electromagnetism.

EMpy (not to be confused with Empy - (http://www.alcyone.com/pyos/empy/) is a suite of numerical algorithms widely used in electromagnetism. The package contains:

  • a. an isotropic and anisotropic transfer matrix algorithm;
  • b. an isotropic and anisotropic rigorous coupled wave analysis (RCWA) algorithm;
  • c. the numerical model of the frequency response of different well-known devices (Mach-Zehnder, Ring Resonators, etc.)
