After years of development, Photon Design has announced that its OmniSim product now features a new 2D/3D FETD engine (Finite Element Time Domain) which will complement its existing FDTD engine. 

The new engine is designed to address some of the specific shortcomings of FDTD, in particular for plasmonic devices for which FDTD can be very slow.  The FETD engine delivers major steps forward in terms of capability, speed and efficiency: from 10x to 100x faster or more for plasmonics!The new engine will be packaged with the FDTD engine, making OmniSim the first tool to include both FDTD and FETD capability.
