A numerical procedure that uses an explicit finite difference method to solve the wave equation is described. This technique results in a propagation algorithm that can accurately propagate an arbitrary electric field through a uniform medium or a medium that is nonuniform, transversely flowing, saturable, and contains index inhomogeneities. By using the… (More)
