Paper Abstract

A new approach to simulation of light propagation through structures with nanometer-sized features is presented. The approach is based on the use of plane waves covering a wide range of spatial frequencies. The advantages of great numerical efficiency and some conception problems connected with the application of fast Fourier transform to a non- uniform medium are considered. Vector field representation and Maxwell's boundary conditions treatment are discussed. The simulation model is used to represent the light distribution passing through a tapered part of a scanning near-field optical probe.
