Introducing the Interactive FDTD Toolbox

The interactive FDTD toolboxThe iFDTD is a software made for fast and easy electrodynamic simulations. Its biggest strength lies in the visualization of electrodynamic effects like total internal reflection, light propagation in photonic crystals etc. Detailed tutorials are given as well as some videos made with the toolbox.

Why Everyone should study Electrodynamics

Electrodynamics should be studied by everyone!Classical electrodynamics is the first field theory students usually encounter. Let us just take a look what kind of impact the discovery of Maxwell's equations had on science. Also: What phenomena will students understand taking the course? If you want, a little motivational overview of electrodynamics.

Graphene Plasmonics: Antennas for THz Spectroscopy

A graphene antenna is used to change the emission of a molecule.Graphene is a two-dimensional material with extraordinary properties. Its tunable conductivity makes the material a prime candidate for sophisticated light-matter interactions. We will see how graphene antennas can be used to dictate a molecule's emission frequencies
