I am using COMSOL multiphysics Optics module for wave optics simulations and I am wondering if there is better simulation software for wave optics simulations (no multiphysics needed).

Like software which is dedicated for wave optics only and performs faster.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the reply. In the first link, it is about ray optics. In the second list, it is about free simulators. I want to find out the best software for WAVE optics simulations (free of charge or with price). Thanks $\endgroup$ – user3785804 Nov 16 '15 at 8:25
