using topology optimization result in EME

      Hello everyone,

      I have designed a structure by using 2D topology optimization and I want to cascade this structure periodically to observe its group delay result. To do that, is it possible to put this structure in EME solver and define periodicity, or should I do this in FDTD? Would the results be trustable if I simulate them by using EME solver? Also, to get similar results between simulation and experimental results, I am planning to put my 2D optimization result as the initial guess of 3D topology optimization in FDTD. Can I also use varFDTD or MODE for the optimization so that I can complete this in just one step or at least in a quicker way, or would the first approach be more reliable?

       

      Thank you.

      Currently I have not seen EME examples on topology. If the periods are not many FDTD would work. Or if you have optimized the single period in FDTD, you can copy the structure to EME and do the peroridicty simulation there.
