PCGrate-SX release 6.2 is available
New PCGrate-SX v.6.2 series with a few principal changes and improvements in comparison with version 6.1 is available for release as from January 31. This special version enables the calculations both multilayer resonance and small wavelength-to-period ratio cases at very high speed using two independent solvers, i.e. Penetrating and Separating. The solvers have different behavior and mutually complementary capabilities for many difficult cases such as deep gratings with thin layers or photonic crystals. With PCGrate-SX v. 6.2 software one can simulate effects of scattering in periodical and non-periodical structures having multilayer micro/nano-roughnesses of various nature, design variable groove depth & multi-section gratings, model gratings covered with very thin or thick layers of arbitrary shape including closed and real one, calculate aspherical gratings, and work with conical mountings & non-planar incident waves as well as with a general polarization state.
PCGrate®-SX v. 6.2 series have three types: PCGrate®-SX v. 6.2 GUI, PCGrate®-SX v. 6.2 XML and PCGrate®-SX v. 6.2 Complete. The PCGrate-SX v. 6.2 XML and PCGrate-SX v. 6.2 Complete types make it possible to calculate the grating efficiency from the command line with input/output data in XML format. The PCGrate-SX v. 6.2 GUI and PCGrate-SX v. 6.2 Complete types make it possible to obtain the calculated data using the Graphical User Interface (i.e. the PCGrate-SX Main application) and work with the results including saving, coping, exporting, plotting, printing, etc. The type is determined by the HASP® HL USB key, which is shipped with the product.
