Penetrable Numerical Modeling of Metallic Nanoparticles at Terahertz Frequencies

Numerical solutions of electromagnetic problems involving nanostructures at terahertz (THz) frequencies are considered. We particularly focus on nanoparticles that are made of typical metals at the lower THz frequencies. Even though the frequency is relatively low, we show that penetrable models are needed for accurately representing electromagnetic characteristics, especially to predict penetrating magnetic fields inside small particles. Due to large permittivity values with negative real parts, stable formulations are needed to obtain equivalent currents and secondary fields. It is shown that the modified combined tangential formulation, which was proposed for plasmonic simulations in wide frequency ranges, provides accurate solutions that are consistent with analytical results for spherical nanoparticles.

On the Accuracy and Efficiency of Surface Formulations in Fast Analysis of Plasmonic Structures via MLFMA
Karaosmanoglu, B.; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2016-08-11)
We consider the accuracy and efficiency of surface integral equations, when they are used to formulate electromagnetic problems involving plasmonic objects at optical frequencies. Investigations on the iterative solutions of scattering problems with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm show that the conventional formulations, especially the state-of-the-art integral equations, can significantly be inaccurate, in contrast to their performances for ordinary dielectrics. The varying performances of the form...
Analysis of Lossy Dielectric Objects with the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2011-07-08)
Rigorous solutions of electromagnetics problems involving lossy dielectric objects are considered. Problems are formulated with two recently developed formulations, namely, the combined-tangential formulation (CTF) and the electric and magnetic current combined-field integral equation (JMCFIE), and solved iteratively using the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Accuracy and efficiency of solutions are compared for different objects and conductivity values. We show that iterative solutions of CTF a...
Combined-field solution of composite geometries involving open and closed conducting surfaces
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2005-04-07)
Combined-field integral equation (CFIE) is modified and generalized to formulate the electromagnetic problems of composite geometries involving both open and closed conducting surfaces. These problems are customarily formulated with the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) due to the presence of the open surfaces. With the new definition and application of the CFIE, iterative solutions of these problems are now achieved with significantly improved efficiency compared to the EFIE solution, without sacrifi...
Hybrid CFIE-EFIE solution of composite geometries with coexisting open and closed surfaces
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2005-07-08)
The combined-field integral equation (CFIE) is employed to formulate the electromagnetic scattering and radiation problems of composite geometries with coexisting open and closed conducting surfaces. Conventional formulations of these problems with the electric-field integral equation (EFIE) lead to inefficient solutions due to the ill-conditioning of the matrix equations and the internal-resonance problems. The hybrid CFIE-EFIE technique introduced in this paper, based on the application of the CRE on the ...
