About the Edition

This thesis reports on a periodic Finite-Difference Time-Domain methodology for the analysis of loaded Transmission-Line Negative-Refractive-Index metamaterials. The modular unit cell of this periodic structure is simulated using the Finite-Difference Time-Domain technique and the computational domain is terminated with periodic boundary conditions. The proposed methodology is applied to the accurate and efficient dispersion analysis of the aforementioned structure and the calculation of the field patterns of the major supported modes. In turn, this methodology is properly extended in order to be employed for the full-wave analysis of Negative-Refractive-Index metamaterial-based leaky-wave antennas and the extraction of their radiation patterns, in a much more numerically efficient way than previously reported approaches.

The aim of this book is to develop efficient computational algorithms to analyze the scattering properties of various electromagnetic periodic structures using the finite-difference time-domain periodic boundary condition (FDTD/PBC) method. The periodic analysis of candidate plasmonic topologies for the implementation of left-handed media at optical frequencies is pursued through a triangular mesh based finite-difference time-domain (FDTD), equipped with Floquet boundary conditions. The technique is shown to possess excellent convergence and accuracy properties, as opposed to the conventional rectangular cell based FDTD.

Finite-difference time-domain or Yee's method (named after the Chinese American applied mathematician Kane S. Yee, born ) is a numerical analysis technique used for modeling computational electrodynamics (finding approximate solutions to the associated system of differential equations).Since it is a time-domain method, FDTD solutions can cover a wide frequency range with .   The accuracy of finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) modelling of left-handed metamaterials (LHMs) is dramatically improved by using an averaging technique along the boundaries of.

In particular, the time-domain modeling of metamaterials, via the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method, is motivated by the richness of the transient behavior that it captures. Using finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulations we investigate the propagation of light pulses in waveguides having a core made of a negative-refractive-index metamaterial.

In order to validate our model we carry out separate simulations for a variety of waveguide core thickness. Periodic structures are common in electromagnetics and photonics, appearing in forms such as metamaterials, elec-tromagnetic band gap materials, phased arrays and photonic crystals.
