I'm a student, and I would to make a simulation of nonlinear-optic effect (like the Kerr effect). I would like a freeware who is able to produce a picture output, and manage if possible non-linear optics, it can be a demonstration soft but in this case it must be long enough. Is there any software that can make these simulations?

    Could you specify your needs and requirements for such software? ie What is your budget? What kind of output would be acceptable - data, animated pictures? Are you looking for some demonstration software or for some ray-tracer able to handle nonlinear-optics? – VicAche May 18 '14 at 15:37

  • Existence isn't a problem, often an answer exists than OP wouldn't even suspect. Please edit your question accordingly. – VicAche May 18 '14 at 19:36

This was made possible by 2003 studies. The first paper includes some pictures. I couldn't find an avaible piece of software making use of this.

The relevant algorithm seems to be SMARDDA. Havn't found any graphic/publicly avaible implementation, so to my (informed) opinion this question has today no relevant answer. I'ld love to be proved wrong.

  • This answer would be more acceptable on somewhere like computational science SE. HEre we are only concerned with actual implemented software. I think this is more fitting as a comment than an answer. – Lyndon White Jun 18 '14 at 7:15
  • @Oxinabox As he is stating he couldn't find any available actually developed software options I'd say talking about research that may help him is the good. – Nick Wilde Jun 18 '14 at 14:23
  • We had discussed this on meta, and "answers that show no answer exists are OK". – VicAche Jun 18 '14 at 16:56
