The result of my diploma thesis is this fully 3D-FDTD simulation which allows you to compute the propagation of electromagnetic waves according to Maxwell's equations. It uses special boundary conditions (usually known as Generalized Perfectly Matched Layers) to damp outgoing waves as good as possible. The configuration is highly configurable by a commented configuration file, but be sure to have enough memory available (128MB+).
