Electromagnetic Solver for OpenFOAM

Hallo,

I plan to simulate electromagnetic wave propagation based on Maxwells equations. Can anybody tell me if there is a solver in OpenFOAM suitable for such problems?

Best regards

maybe

goes somehow in the direction you want to use OF for

Hi, I tried to run the rodFoam solver but ended up in the error as follows:

Any help in this regard is much appreciated.
