Finite Difference Beam Propagation Method

version 1.2 (2.11 KB) by

Gaussian pulse propagated in free space using FDBPM



View License

Simulation of a gaussian pulse propagated in free space through 1000 um, using finite differences.
Just run the script and you'll get a surface which is made up of the pulse propagated at 1 um steps.

Do you have some references you have studied before to develop the program??? because i'm trying to understand your algoritm.

Can we use finite difference methode to propagate a gussian pulse along optical fiber using schrodinger nonlinear equation?? plz reply

Eduardo Jiménez

this work is a exelente elaboration of a very util simulation for the observation of the propagation of a pulse.
very good work.
