Lumerical MODE and DEVICE

UCSB has a license for Lumerical's MODE and DEVICE software.

We now have a script to run MODE which will automatically submit it to the queue, use


Or, better yet, do a "module load lumerical" which will define the path so you only need to type ''

to submit your MODE jobs.

To manually run it, see below - especially if you used to have it being fairly interactive.

For an graphs that print out, you won't be able to see them, so the line after the "plot" command put a


which will just save you a jpeg of the plot.

At the end of the LSF file, put a


which will create a 'my-run.lsf' file that you can read back in to look at the results.

To run in the queue, create a job file that looks like this.


submit the job with 'qsub my-job.job', and you can monitor it with 'qstat -u $USER'



coming soon, I hope
