In our research project HighPerMeshes, physicists use Maxwell's Equations to simulate nanoantennas and interferences within different materials. Our goal is to provide a technology that enables the implementation of simulation codes in a simpler and more productive fashion, while at the same time allowing them to deploy to different target devices and accelerators. We decided to use SYCL to analyze and re-write a set of example code to solve Maxwell's equations because it allowed us to develop using standard C++, target a wide range of hardware, and gave us the opportunity to accelerate the code on this hardware.
