General finite-difference time-domain solution of an arbitrary electromagnetic source interaction with an arbitrary dielectric surface.

In this study, we develop a numerical algorithm to calculate the interaction of an arbitrary electromagnetic beam with an arbitrary dielectric surface as one of the tools necessary to design and build a detector network based on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS). By using the scattered-field finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method with incident… CONTINUE READING
