Nanoscale electromagnetic elements : computational aspects

  title={Nanoscale electromagnetic elements : computational aspects},
  author={Brenton Thomas},
The use of the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) and the Transmission Line Matrix (TLM) algorithm to model nanoscale electromagnetic elements is investigated. It is found that comparable accuracy of the TLM algorithm to the FDTD algorithm combined with significant practical reductions in computation time render TLM a superior algorithm for nanoscale optoelectronic problems. It is also found that as the as the TLM algorithm implicitly incorporates "split fields" into its definition that it… CONTINUE READING
