Paper Abstract

The finite-difference time-domain (FD-TD) numerical solver for Maxwell's equations is used to model problems in nonlinear optics. Since FD-TD makes no assumptions about pulse bandwidth or preferred direction of scattering, and can account for frequency-dependent material properties that vary on a submicron scale, it can provide optical design engineers with an unprecedented level of detailed field information, including pulse dynamics. This paper presents FD-TD computed results for a variety of passive and active optical microstructures.
