Abstract
A simple finite difference time domain (FDTD) scheme is proposed for modeling three-dimensional (3D) nondispersive chiral media. Based on the recently reported new BI-FDTD mesh method and rearranged curl equations, this scheme implements a simple leapfrog algorithm. By adding the mirror layer, the perfect electric conductor (PEC) condition is implemented in the BI-FDTD mesh method of 3D problem. Results of this scheme are presented for the scattering coefficients of discontinuity in waveguides, which are partially filled with chiral or achiral media. The validation is performed by comparing the results with those obtained from the literature and software simulation.
