We present a modified combined tangential formulation (MCTF) for stable solutions of plasmonic problems involving metallic objects that are modeled as penetrable structures. For a wide range of negative real permittivity values, corresponding to the varying characteristics of the metals at infrared and visible frequencies, MCTF provides both accurate and efficient solutions in comparison to the conventional formulations. We explain the stability of MCTF in terms of the discretized operators for the limit case and demonstrate its stability on canonical scattering problems involving plasmonic spheres.

We consider a modified combined tangential formulation (MCTF) for stable and accurate analysis of plasmonic problems involving metallic objects modeled as penetrable bodies. For a wide range of negative real permittivity values, corresponding to varying characteristics of metals at THz, infrared, and visible frequencies, MCTF provides accurate solutions in comparison to the conventional formulations for penetrable objects. We further show that, for structures with subwavelength dimensions, penetrable models...
Generalized Hybrid Surface Integral Equations for Finite Periodic Perfectly Conducting Objects
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-01-01)
Hybrid formulations that are based on simultaneous applications of diversely weighted electric-field integral equation (EFIE) and magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) on periodic but finite structures involving perfectly conducting surfaces are presented. Formulations are particularly designed for closed conductors by considering the unit cells of periodic structures as sample problems for optimizing EFIE and MFIE weights in selected regions. Three-region hybrid formulations, which are designed by geneti...
Fast and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures involving near-zero-index materials
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Koyaz, Yesim; İbili, Hande; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-09-01)
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. When traditional solution methods are directly applied, however, instability and inaccuracy issues arise, making solutions inefficient and inac...

KARAOSMANOGLU, BARISCAN; OZMU, UTKU; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2019-07-01)
© 2019 IEEE.We present surface-integral-equation formulations for accurate and stable solutions of electromagnetic problems involving near-zero-index materials with arbitrarily small permittivity and/or permeability values. The formulations are developed for conventional discretizations, while they can be implemented by using interaction routines of existing solvers. Initial results on canonical objects clearly demonstrate the superiority of the developed formulations in comparison to the conventional ones.
Novel strategies for second-kind integral equations to analyze perfect electric conductors
Güler, Sadri; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) for three-dimensional perfectly conducting objects is studied with a particular focus on the solutions of the formulation with the method of moments employing low-order discretization elements. Possible discretization functions and their applications in the testing of MFIE while considering different numbers of testing points are analyzed for accurate and efficient solutions. Successful results are obtained by using rotational Buffa-Christiansen te...
