Vancouver, British Columbia January 13th, 2011 - Lumerical Solutions, Inc. a global provider of nanophotonic design software, today announced the immediate release of FDTD Solutions 7.5. This release features a concurrent computing capability which allows users to easily distribute simulations on multiple independent computer resources. Together with Lumerical's well established capabilities for distributed computation on high-performance computing clusters, FDTD Solutions 7.5 offers dramatic speed improvements when used on multiple desktops and workstations within traditional computer networks.

"FDTD Solutions 7.5 allows end-users to optimally achieve design goals on modern computing hardware," according to Dr. James Pond, Lumerical's CTO. "This release completes a multi-year mission to get individual computers simulating as fast as possible, and then to send those simulations to all available computers conveniently from your workstation. The time required to find an optimal design can easily be reduced by a factor of ten or more using the computers found in most offices or labs
