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

/sw/cnsi/lumerical/mode/bin/varfdtd-run-pbs.sh

to submit your MODE jobs.

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

For MODE:

You'll need some slight modifications to your lsf file

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

exportfigure("figure-test");

which will just save you a jpeg of the plot.

At the end of the LSF file, put a

save("my-run");

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'

 

For DEVICE:

coming soon, I hope
