Welcome to the Photonics group! If you are a student or practicing engineer or scientist who wants to learn more about photonics or an instructor looking for materials to use in a course, you can find material here that includes complete courses and seminars on specialized topics.
Much of the material is freely accessible by any visitor, but by joining this group, you can participate in discussions on topics of interest to you, post items to the group wiki or even work on a project with other group members. Additionally, as a group member you may receive notifications about new materials and events of interest to the photonics group members. Adding events to the group calendar is as easy as clicking on “add event”.
You can also contribute substantial resources to nanoHUB through the resource contribution process, and then send a message to the group manager so that links to those resources can be added to this group.

Development of ACTEOM node is a part of the DARPA EXTREME program. The node is powered by nanoHUB and provides a versatile in-the-cloud front-end (TOOLKIT) to simulate light propagation in the modern Engineered Optical Materials (EnMats). The project is a result of a close collaboration of fabrication and simulation experts, thus delivering the unique software product with a live connection to the recent research (SHOWCASE) and ability to reproduce optical phenomena in online simulations utilizing original material data (DATABASE, unit-cells) and multi-physics numerical models.
