MaxwellBloch

Build Status Documentation Status Coverage Status PyPI

MaxwellBloch is a Python package for solving the coupled Maxwell-Bloch equations describing the nonlinear propagation of near-resonant light through thermal quantised systems such as atomic vapours.

Above is an example solution for the propagation of a 4π pulse through a dense atomic vapour. The pulse immediately breaks up on entering the medium and the resultant pulses form two optical solitons each with a pulse area of 2π.

Documentation

Docs for the project are at maxwellbloch.readthedocs.io.

Install

I recommend using Conda environments.

You can create and activate an environment named mb with all the required dependencies for MaxwellBloch with

conda create --name mb -c conda-forge python=3 numpy=1 scipy=1 qutip=4
conda activate mb

The MaxwellBloch package can then be installed from PyPI using

pip install maxwellbloch

More detailed installation instructions can be found in the docs along with many example problems.
