CUDA Spotlight: GPU-Accelerated FDTD Simulations for Applications in Photonics

Originally published at: https://developer.nvidia.com/blog/cuda-spotlight-gpu-accelerated-fdtd-simulations-applications-photonics/

This week’s Spotlight is on Pierre Wahl, a PhD student at Vrije Universiteit Brussel. As a member of the Brussels Photonics Team (B-PHOT), he designs energy-efficient optical interconnects and works closely with the NVIDIA Application Lab at the Forschungszentrum Jülich. Pierre used CUDA to develop B-CALM, a GPU-accelerated Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulator. NVIDIA:…
