Paper Abstract

Rigorous numerical simulations of Maxwell's equations are extremely helpful in the understanding of physical effects in nano-optics and are essential for the design of nano-optical devices. We have developed a finite-element (FEM) package for the solution of eigenvalue and scattering problems resulting from Maxwell's equations. We have implemented higher order vectorial elements, adaptive mesh refinement, transparent boundary conditions based on the Pole condition, and fast algorithms. In this contribution we discuss the application of the FEM solvers to recent experiments in nano-photonics.
