QWED is just introducing a new version 6.0 of QuickWave-3D and QuickWave-V2D electromagnetic simulators. The new version replaces version 6.0 released last year.
According to our earlier plans, QWED has concentrated on software development from the electromagnetic modelling side, and also on extending its functionality and adequacy for new emerging applications. For example, in response to the optical and semiconductor industry needs, we have implemented Gaussian pulse illumination with finite spot size and models of metamaterials. We have also extended NTF postprocessing to lossy background media and allowed switching off selected NTF walls for validating directions of energy flow in the near field. We will welcome further suggestions by our software users, and in particular, from those interested in non-standard high-frequency problems. We are also open to provide customised software versions or consulting services related to the software application.
Below we shall signal the main changes introduced in version 6.0. The description will be brief because in most cases we will be simply referencing the appropriate sections of the extended Manuals.
