Hi, I’m Nancy, a Support Engineer at Lumerical.
I’ll be presenting this introductory course on scripting.
The contents of this course were created by my colleagues, Greg Baethge and Dr. Shin-Sung
Kim, who are also Support Engineers.
Lumerical's software includes its own powerful scripting language based on a MATLAB-like
It allows replication of almost all actions done through the Graphic User Interface - such
as manipulating simulation objects, running simulations, and analyzing simulation results.
If you need to set up complex simulation objects or carry out advanced analysis of your simulation
results, it's often a better idea to use the script, rather than doing everything manually
through the Graphical User Interface.
Automation of tasks and reproducibility are also great advantages of using the scripting
This course is intended to introduce users to the basics of Lumerical's scripting language
for more efficient and productive use of FDTD Solutions.
But a majority of the script can be used in all Lumerical products.
The course starts by guiding you through the scripting environment and scripting at various
stages of simulation workflow.
It then provides more detail on the script commands in various categories.
Everyone that completes the course will receive a Scripting 100 training course completion
