This tool, written in python, allows for calculating optical coefficients in layered anisotropic materials.

The code post-processes macroscopic dielectric tensors computed with exciting. The user can set different parameters (e.g., direction and polarization of the incoming light, thickness of the sample, etc.) to mimic the experimental setup.

Offering a user-friendly layout, LayerOptics can be easily interfaced to any ab initio code computing dielectric tensors.

An introduction for the usage of this tool can be found in the related publication:
