MEEP is an open source finite difference time domain (FDTD) electrodynamics code that can be used to model light propagation in wave guides, photonic crystals, and other optical structures. It can run in efficient in parallel based on MPI libraries and can be used to handle 2D and 3D photonic structures.
- Wave guides
- Photonic crystals
Original Developer: David Roundy while in the J. D. Joannopoulos group
MEEP Code Manager - Steven Johnson MIT
Other Developers: Mihai Ibanescu, Peter Bermel, Ardavan F. Oskooi, Alejandro W. Rodriguez, and Alexander P. McCauley
