Optical Simulations

Bringing together the multitude of optical simulations in the diverse QuantumFrontiers research environment.


  • Networking on the topic of optical simulations, i.e. exchange on simulation tasks and methods, professional software and self-written algorithms, limitations and current work on pushing boundaries, on ways to improve precision and speed of an algorithm, and of course scientific findings.
  • Regular video conferences where members can introduce their work, used methods, obstacles in current tasks, and findings.


  • Optical simulations in a multitude of different backgrounds and applications.
