First of all, let's install Anaconda. From The websit of Anaconda, please download the installer of the series of Python3.x . Since the installer is of the file of .sh, execute it as below.

$ bash [download-folder]/Anaconda3-5.2.0-Linux-x86_64.sh

Then, let's install pymeep (ref ) Execute the command below.

$ conda create -n mp -c chogan -c conda-forge pymeep

All setup is finished.

Activate the system as below.

$ source activate mp

Execute the file as below.Please rename hogehoge.py as what you name it.

(mp) $ python hogehoge.py

You can get sample source from Github.example If you want to deactivate the system, do as below.

(mp) $ source deactivate

In order to install pymeep which support parallel calculation, execute the following command.

$ conda create -n pmp -c chogan -c conda-forge pymeep-parallel

Activate pymeep which support parallel calculation by following command

$ source activate pmp

Programs run with following command.

$ mpirun -np 4 python <script_name>

"-np" indicate how many processors will run. In this case, 4 processors run simultaneously.

The h5py package can be used for editing HDF5 file in python. Install it by the following command.

apt-get install python-h5py

h5py is already installed on flex and tubes.

On maruoka's WSL,

pip install h5py

doesn't work saying

ImportError: No module named h5py

We can modify the phase of source by the amplitude.

(set! sources (list (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ex) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) ) (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ey) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) (amplitude (exp (* 0+1i 1.570796327))) ) ) )

(set! sources (list (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ey) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) ) (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ex) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) (amplitude (exp (* 0+1i 1.570796327))) ) ) )

(set! sources (list (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ex) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) (amplitude (cos x)) ) (make source (src (make continuous-src (frequency (/ 1 7)))) (component Ey) (center 0 0 8) (size 50 50 0) (amplitude (sin x)) ) ) )

There are three ways to implement oblique incident light.

To use material library, add

(include "/home/students/maru/meep/scheme/materials.scm")

at the beginning of your program. This library only works at tube61, 62, 63. For how to use the material library, check https://meep.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Materials/

You need to specify unit to use material library. The default is 1000 micro meter. In order to change the unit to 100 micro meter, add

(set! um-scale (* um-scale 0.05))

In the document of PML by one of the the author of MEEP(http://math.mit.edu/~stevenj/18.369/pml.pdf)

With PML, however, the constant factor is very good to start with, so experience shows that a simple quadratic or cubic turn-on of the PML absorption usually produces negligible refections for a PML layer of only half a wavelength or thinner [1,21]. (Increasing the resolution also increases the resolution alos increase the effectiveness of the PML, because it approaches the exact wave equation.)

However, when the light coming at oblique incident angle, PML should be thicker. The reflectivity of PML for incident angle at X can be represented as e^{-2*k*d*cos(X)*G} for some constant G. d is the thickness of PML. k is the wavenumber.(Please check https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?arnumber=477075 for details). If X approaches to 90 degree, the efficiency of the absorbance of PML becomes really bad.

If you put dielectrics touching to the PML, please confirm you overlap the dielectrics and PML. Otherwise, PML is useless because PML is defined for the boundary of vaccum to absorb the light not for dielectrics. It is implemented by just multiplying tensors on dielectric constants. So you need to overlap PML and dielectrics. (Please check https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/stamp/stamp.jsp?arnumber=477075 for details).

PML and Dielectrics touch each other but do not overlap

Following error occurs, when you try to use material library at FLEX or Tube60.

ERROR: Unbound variable: E-susceptibilities

Material library only works at tube61, 62, 63. Please go to tube61, 62, 63.
