June 7, 2011, Baltimore, MD, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the introduction of a finite element based Eigenmode solver in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® version 2011 SP3, at IMS 2011 booth #1423.
The computation of Eigenmodes is essential for the accurate design of resonant structures, such as cavities, filters or particle accelerators. Typical results of these simulations are resonance frequencies and Q-values. An additional application area of Eigenmode solvers is the design of periodic devices, such as slow-wave structures (e.g. travelling wave tubes) and metamaterials, where phase-diagrams can be derived from unit cells.
