pyMMF: a Python module for multimode fibers simulations [WP2]

pyMMF is a simple module that allows finding the propagating modes of multimode fibers with arbitrary index profiles and simulates the transmission matrix for a given length. The solver can also take into account the curvature of the fiber (experimental). This code is not designed to compete with commercially available software in term of accuracy of the mode profiles/propagation constants or speed, it aims at quickly simulating realistic transmission matrices of short sections of fiber.

ALP4lib: A open-source Python library for controlling DMDs [WP1]

Vialux provides Texas Instrument DMD (Digital MicroMirror Devices) chips with an electronic board to send and display image sequences at high speed (up to 30kHz).  We share here a simple module that wraps the C++ functions for Python developed for the MOLOTOF project. It allows to easily use the basic functions while providing the advanced features of the ALP API.
