SPOCK (Simulation program for Photonics and Optical Circuit Knowledge) is a free simulation program for photonic circuits. The eventual goal is to make this software an essential aid for optical and photonic circuit analysis (similar to what SPICE is for electronic circuits). The software calculates complex eigenmodes of propagation in plane-layered structures composed of homogenous, isotropic materials having arbitrary complex dielectric properties. The formulation allows any number of guiding or non-guiding layers (what to what your computer memory allows).
