Tidy3D provides four basic geometric shapes, namely, Box, Cylinder, Sphere, and PolySlab. These shapes can be used to create various periodic structures used in photonic crystals and other photonic devices such as square or hexagonal arrays of cylinders, slabs with square or hexagonal arrays of holes, rectangular grating, L and H cavities, wood pile, and FCC/BCC crystals. For this purpose, you can organize these geometries in a tidy3d.GeometryGroup. This notebook contains functions that can be used to build these popular periodic structures with ease. Moreover, users can learn from these examples and create their own periodic structures using the same principles.
