Phoamtonics

Studying the photonics of foams, we showed how to construct a foam-based photonic crystal with a substantial band gap using the famous Weaire-Phelan foam:

We published all data generated or analyzed for our phoamtonics study, including configurations, parameter files, raw output, and postprocessed data, in a Zenodo
repository
