Description:laserac: CALD - Cellular Automata-based Laser Dynamics
Abstract:This application simulates the dynamics of laser devices using a Cellular Automata-based discrete model. Individual-based models like Cellular Automata are very effective to carry out detailed simulations of complex systems in a broad range of fields of science and technology. This kind of models has been recently applied by the proponent to simulate one of the most paradigmatic complex systems of particular technological importance: laser systems. Our application uses this model to carry out simulations intended to understand the emergence of macroscopic behaviors in lasers, arising from the interaction of simple microscopic components, and to simulate specific optoelectronic devices of arbitrary shape.
The application was ported within the framework of the DEGISCO project.
