Plane Wave Simulation Based on the Periodic Cell of PhC

Most of the photonic crystal has the periodic lattice. In some cases, you may¬†want to know the band gap effect for such a lattice. As discussed in the OptiFDTD Technical Background, this task can be simplified in an FDTD simulation using plane wave excitation and PEC/PMC boundary conditions. For example, Figure 100 shows a 2D … Continue reading Plane Wave Simulation Based on the Periodic Cell of PhC
