Abstract

A set of general purpose two-dimensional single-field finite-difference time-domain updating equations for solving oblique incidence electromagnetic problems is derived. The traditional FDTD updating equations are based on Maxwell's curl equations whereas the single-field FDTD updating equations are based on the vector wave equation. Performance analyses of the single-field formulation in terms of CPU time and memory requirement are presented along with numerical validation. It was observed that the single-field method is more efficient than the traditional FDTD formulation in terms of speed and memory requirements for oblique incident problems.
