PCGrate-S(X) update v.6.4 32/64-bit is available
PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 32/64-bit series software with a lot of improvements is available for an update as from April 7. Both Refractive Index Editor and Border Profile Editor were redesigned. Random generators for boundary profiles were improved. The ‘Diffraction angle’ type graph was added to the plot function parameters. A number of other control and information parameters were included. The PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 32/64-bit series update is ready for Microsoft® Windows® 7.
With PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 32/64-bit series 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 (VGD) & variable-line-spaced (VLS) multi-section gratings, model gratings covered with very thin or/and thick layers having arbitrary profiled borders including real & non-function ones, calculate photonic crystals & aspherical gratings, and work with conical mountings & non-planar incident waves as well as with a general polarization state.
This version enables the calculations both multilayer resonance and small wavelength-to-period ratio cases at very high speed using two independent solvers based on the modified boundary integral equation method, i.e. Penetrating and Separating. The solvers have different behavior and mutually complementary capabilities for many difficult cases such as deep & shallow gratings & rough mirrors with very thin layers, grazing incidence, x-rays, and photonic crystals.
PCGrate®-S(X) v. 6.4 32/64-bit has two series: S and SX; and each series have three types: PCGrate®-S(X) v. 6.4 GUI, PCGrate®-S(X) v. 6.4 XML and PCGrate®-S(X) v. 6.4 Complete. PCGrate®-S v. 6.4 series have the minimal value of the wavelength-to-period ratio λ/d of 0.02 and the maximal number of layers of the grating surface multilayer material of 20. PCGrate®-SX v. 6.4 series have the minimal value of the wavelength λ of 0.01 nm (there is no a physical restriction on wavelength-to-period ratios) and the maximal number of layers of the grating surface multilayer material of 10 000. The PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 XML and PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 Complete types make it possible to calculate the grating efficiency from the command line with input/output data in XML format. В The PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 GUI and PCGrate-S(X) v. 6.4 Complete types make it possible to obtain the calculated data using the Graphical User Interface and work with the results including saving, coping, exporting, plotting, printing, etc. The type is determined by the HASP® SRM USB key, which is shipped with the product.
Attention! The update has the different input and output formats in comparison with the first release of v. 6.4.
