How to define a “bi-anisotropic” material in Lumerical FDTD?

Dear @npourram

We do not support bi-anisotropic material. Simulating these materials where electric and magnetic fields are coupled and anisotropic requires plugins that treats electromagnetic fields different than our typical calculations in FDTD. If you were interested in these materials, you can write your own material plugin, examples of which can be found in the link below:
