We consider full-wave optimizations of photonic crystals (PhCs) involving dielectric rods to obtain desired output patterns for given excitations. Starting from a full grid, each rod is kept or extracted in order to maximize the power density at different output locations. PhCs are modeled as three-dimensional structures, which are analyzed via surface integral equations and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm, in order to investigate realistic problems without resorting to infinite-length assumptions. MLFMA is integrated into genetic algorithms that enable flexible cost functions for the optimizations. Numerical results involving different structures demonstrate the capabilities of the optimization environment.

We present efficient and accurate frequency-domain analysis of three-dimensional structures involving near-zero-index (NZI) materials with very small permittivity and/or permeability values. Accurate simulations are required to analyze these homogenized models that represent metamaterials with exotic NZI properties, which can be useful in a plethora of applications.

We consider the efficient solution of electromagnetics problems involving dielectric and composite dielectric-metallic structures, formulated with the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE). Dense matrix equations obtained from the discretization of JMCFIE with Rao-Wilton-Glisson functions are solved iteratively, where the matrix-vector multiplications are performed efficiently with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. JMCFIE usually provides well conditioned matrix equa...
