Using parakat to speed up 2D Finesse runs

A more complex/realistic example demonstrating how parakat can be used to speed up 2-dimentional simulations is provided at the end of this post. The example Finesse code used in Parallelising Finesse 2 + PyKat: three ways is deliberately simple and quick so we can demonstrate some basic functionality. However it’s not a situation you’d realistically […]

Power loss at circular aperture

Simple example on how to compute the power loss at a circular aperture. Slightly off topic, but can use dummy variables to tune the ration between the mirror and beam radius: Note that the second parameter in the xaxis command (‘relsize’) is just a random string when you use xaxis with a dummy variable. Parameter […]
