Modelling graphene and surface materials

Highly efficient simulation of 2D materials using OmniSim's FETD

OmniSim’s FETD engine supports the modelling of graphene and other 2D materials in 3D using a true surface model. Graphene is characterised by a surface conductivity instead of a refractive index, and is challenging to model with conventional tools.

Suspended graphene ribbons

Here we use FETD to model the resonances associated with suspended graphene ribbons in air, the input light being injected at normal incidence. The results are in excellent agreement with [1].
