In this paper, we present an application of grid computing to solve an important industrial problem: that of optimising the band gap of photonic crystals, which are an important technology in future generation telecomms and sensing. The computational power grid enabled months of experimentation to be performed in a weekend. Of particular interest was the necessity to run jobs on both Linux and Windows resources.
