Software package for modelling electromagnetic interaction

  1. Sep 10, 2015 #1
    I would like to ask about any software package, where interaction between a moving particle and a monolayer can be simulated. What i need to get is a spectral angular density distribution in the far-field zone within optical frequency range for a problem when a particle crosses a monolayer. I tried to use CST package , but for optical frequency range it does not fit. So what are your proposals?

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    Which software packages have you tried?

    Are the incident particles that cross the mono-layer photons ?
    Is this a scattering problem, a bit like X-ray diffraction, but at optical wavelengths ?

    Do you expect to get a colour dependent scattering based on interaction between the chemistry of the layer and the photon ?
    Will the molecular structure or molecular orientation be important in that scattering ?

    I'm sorry for the delay - didn't get the notifications on my email.
    No, did not find anithing. I was trying to connet to zemax support, but didn't get any success with the package - it does not fit to my problem.
    What i have tried - CST , but the result do not correspond to the theory that i developed. So i keep searching...

    What do you mean by mono-layer photons?
    It is a transition radiation problem, withing macroelecrodynamics theory, that is all :)

    CST modelling.
