Hybrid FEM-Fmm Approach for Efficient Calculations of Periodic Photonic Structures
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 33, 121-135, 2013
Abstract
A hybrid approach to find the optical response of periodic photonic structures to incident light is presented. The approach is based on a scattering matrix combination of the Finite Element Method (FEM) and the Fourier Modal Method (FMM). Optical response calculations include: scattering in both reflection and transmission directions, absorption and electric and magnetic field distributions inside the structure. The approach is tested on a structure --- composed of dielectric and metallic materials --- that is periodic in one direction. An analysis of the calculation accuracy shows that the approach depends on the subdivision into FEM and FMM domains and that the optimal subdivision depends on the calculations frequency range as well as on the structure geometry. For testing, we use the commercial FEM solver contained in CST Microwave Studio and a based on C/C++ Fourier Modal Method implementation.
