In line with universal conventions of scientific work, citations to the content on these pages are certainly always welcome. Depending on the preferences of the journal / proceedings style that applies, probably mostly the link will do. See Refs. [52, 53] of S. Dutta and G. J. Verbiest, Optics Express 30 (23), 42323-42335 (2022), Ref.  of J. Roh et al., Nature Communications 11, 271 (2020), or Ref.  of V. Bonal et al., Scientific Reports 9, 11159 (2019) for example citations of the OMS and BendS scripts. Please make sure that you refer to the present location https://www.computational-photonics.eu/oms.html or https://www.siio.eu/oms.html, with the present page title 1-D mode solver for dielectric multilayer slab waveguides for the OMS solver; proceed analogously for any of the other scripts or the Metric & WMM computational libraries. The style guidelines might require a statement of the date of access to the page in question.
All content on the SiIO pages has been prepared with care, in the hope that it will be useful. Please note that the solvers and the example results on the SiIO web site, and the software downloadable from this site, are provided 'as is' without warranty of any kind, without even the implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
The external links have been selected solely on the basis of personal preference, and mainly by chance. Certainly the lists cannot make any claim to be complete. Responsibility for the contents of all linked external pages rests fully with the owners of the respective sites.
These are private, noncommercial pages. When you access the site, certain information send by your internet browser will be stored in the server log files. This concerns e.g. the version and type of your browser, the pages that you access, information on the referring page, date and time of the access, and your IP address. In case you contact the site owner by e-mail, your e-mail address will be stored, e.g. for purposes of further correspondence.
The online solvers on these pages use html form elements merely as a front-end for entering your data for further processing by the solver scripts. When you access the solvers, these scripts are downloaded to your computer, and executed locally by your browser. None of that input data is being sent elsewhere over your internet connection (that is, unless things happen that remain outside the control of the solver scripts).
The local search feature (magnifier symbol) is realized via the service provided by Startpage.com; any keywords you enter into the search field are transferred to the respective servers. Please refer to their pages for further information on possible privacy issues related to your queries.
