Paper Abstract

We discuss how a spectral-domain method in combination with a split-operator technique can be used to calculate exact solutions of the time-dependent Maxwell equations. We apply this technique to study the propagation of a light pulse through an inhomogeneous medium consisting of practically arbitrarily shaped dielectric and metallic materials.
