Finite Difference Time Domain Method for Computing the Band-Structure of 3D Photonic Crystals
A numerical method based on Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) scheme for computing the photonic band-structure of three dimensional photonic crystals is introduced in this paper. Also, the accuracy and stability, numerical dispersion, boundary Conditions as well as excitation attaching to the scheme are detailed analyzed. For checking the method, the simulating results of photonic band structure on two type lattices are presented.
