Dispersive Media in FDTD-Comparison of Recursive Convolution and Auxiliary Differential Equation Methods

Authors: T.O. Körner and W. Fichtner

Affilation: ETH-EPFL, Switzerland

Pages: 339 - 343

Keywords: dispersive media, FDTD, recursive convolution, auxiliary differential equation method

A new, efficient algorithm for modelling dispersive media in Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) methods is presented. It is based on the Auxiliary Differential Equation (ADE) formulation. Accuracy and efficiency are compared to other ADE implementations and to various Recursive Convolution (RC) methods.
