Lumerical Multiproduct Training - Tsinghua University, Beijing

All Product Training
Date: September 25-26, 2017
Location: Tsinghua University, Beijing, CN
In this two-day workshop, learn to use Lumerical’s component design tools (FDTD Solutions, MODE Solutions and DEVICE), as well as circuit/system design tool (INTERCONNECT), by working through some application examples of current industrial and academic interest. Attendees will obtain a broad range of knowledge on the main product features that can be applied across a wide variety of applications. Users are expected to have a basic familiarity with the products which can be obtained by watching the product introductory webinars and/or using a trial version of the software.
There will be a pre-training survey sent to all attendees to identify the applications of greatest interest and the time spent on each application may be tailored accordingly.
