The spectral and spatial treatment of electromagnetic fields express an essential operation regarding the functionality of integrated optical devices. Such molding of fields can hardly be handled without sophisticated heuristic optimization tools. We propose evolutionary algorithm schemes being canonical by investigating numerous design examples in the(More)
Particle-based simulations running on large highperformance computing systems over many time steps can generate an enormous amount of particle- and field-based data for post-processing and analysis. Achieving high-performance I/O for this data, effectively managing it on disk, and interfacing it with analysis and visualization tools can be challenging,(More)
This article presents the RF characterization results of a large-area MCM-D technology developed within the EU LAP project. Microstrip lines were simulated, designed, and manufactured in several material combinations. Measurements up to 120 GHz showed good coincidence between simulation and reality. Future work is dedicated to filters and antennas in the 77(More)
Significant problems facing all experimental and computational sciences arise from growing data size and complexity. Common to all these problems is the need to perform efficient data I/O on diverse computer architectures. In our scientific application, the largest parallel particle simulations generate vast quantities of six-dimensional data. Such a(More)
Two dedicated RF test vehicles (RF-TV) have been designed to characterise the high frequency performance of a new low-cost thin film (MCM-D) technology, fabricated on large area panels (LAP). Previous investigations revealed the capabilities of the new LAP technology to be used at frequencies up to 110 GHz. Test structures for transmission measurements,(More)
The dyadic Green's function (DGF) method is an attractive approach for the calculation of electromagnetic scattering in spherically symmetric layered geometry. We investigate a recent formulation and reveal a problem that is associated with the nonconverging series that are employed for the calculation of the DGF in unbounded media. To overcome this(More)

We introduce the dune-curvilineargrid module. The module provides the self-contained, parallel grid manager, as well as the underlying elementary curvilinear geometry module dune-curvilineargeometry. This work is motivated by the need for reliable and scalable electromagnetic design of nanooptical devices. Curvilinear geometries improve both the accuracy of(More)
