PARALLEL MULTILEVEL FAST MULTIPOLE ALGORITHM FOR COMPLEX PLASMONIC METAMATERIAL STRUCTURES

2013-11-09
A parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is developed for fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving complex plasmonic metamaterial structures. Composite objects that consist of multiple penetrable regions, such as dielectric, lossy, and plasmonic parts, are formulated rigorously with surface integral equations and solved iteratively via MLFMA. Using the hierarchical strategy for the parallelization, the developed implementation is capable of simulating realistic structures discretized with millions of unknowns.

Nested iterative solutions using full and approximate forms of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) are presented for efficient analysis of electromagnetic problems. The developed mechanism is based on preconditioning an iterative solution via another iterative solution, and this way, nesting multiple solutions as layers. The accuracy is systematically reduced from top to bottom by using the on-the-fly characteristics of MLFMA, as well as the iterative residual errors. As a demonstration, a three...
