Editing the optical mesh/layers

The optical mesh automatically extends to cover the optical simulation window, so one does not usually need to worry about configuring it. The optical material layers are defined in the list at the bottom of figure 2. The first column is a unique identifier, it must start with a hash symbol, but apart from that you can call it what you want. The second column is the thickness of the layer. The forth column is the material system, data files describing the material system are stored in the 'phys' directory. Finally, the forth column tells the model if the layer is part of the active layer or not (more about that in the next section.)
