 The course focuses on the basic numerical modeling techniques commonly used in modeling most of the micro/nano optical systems. By the end of the course, the students should have a solid knowledge in modeling, a skill that is essential in almost every aspect of engineering and science. Although the course focuses on modeling optical systems, it can be extended to other areas of interest. The course will cover the following topics:
 Introduction to guidance and the concept of modes.
 Rectangular and circular waveguides.
 Finitedifference mode solving
 Semianalytical methods: Scattering matrix
 Finitedifference beam propagation.
