Lists the material parameters. The available parameters depend on the type of material model. The screenshot shows the parameters for a sampled data material, which includes a table of refractive index vs frequency.
The material database comes with many default materials, including silicon, glass, air, gold and silver. In this video lesson, you will learn about the format of these default materials and how to use them.
The following video demonstrates how to add an (n,k) material and 3D sampled data material to the Material Database. To follow along, download the associated file containing sampled material data to be imported.
