Controll Lumerical by using Matlab or Python

    • Soufiane El kabil

      I am using FDTD simulation to model samples with varying thicknesses. I would like to inquire if there is a method or a MATLAB script that can be utilized to change the sample thickness automatically, without the need for manual adjustments.

      Hi Soufiane,

      You can do that using the Lumerical Scripting Language, by writing the code in the Script File Editor. Lumerical offers a large number of script commands that can easily help you run/post-process your simulations. This will be the simplest approach in my opinion. You may refer to these introductory videos on Ansys Innovation Courses to get started: Lumerical Scripting First Lesson. Lumerical also offers Python and MATLAB Integration, please refer to the following links for more information:

      1. Python API Overview
      2. MATLAB Script Integration

      But like I mentioned, the first option would be the most straightforward. And I feel the Lumerical's Scripting Language is very easy to use if you know MATLAB Scripting already.
