      Hello, are there any application examples of FDTD particle swarm optimization algorithm in metasurface or metamaterial simulation? Can you provide relevant reference links?

      How to use the optimization function that comes with FDTD? Can you give relevant reference instructions?

      I don't think we have any examples of the particle swarm optimization tool for metasurface or metamaterial simulations. However, some information and a few examples of how the PSO tool can be used can be found here:
      Here is another example that uses the PSO tool to optimize the geometry of a Y splitter:
      The approach for a metasurface or metamaterial should be similar: parameterize the geometry (a structure group might be helpful for this) and define a FOM that is a single real value for the algorithm to optimize.
