The UTS node of CUDOS The UTS node of CUDOS is led by Professor Christopher Poulton.

Computational modelling is integral to the research programs of CUDOS and comprises both the development of new tools, and the use of software systems that are in wide use in the photonics industry. In contemporary photonics research, 3D simulation is now mandatory, with actual design work requiring the simulation of real 3D systems in order to accurately characterise device performance. By its very nature, 3D modelling is very demanding and requires the use of large memory, parallel computer systems.
