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 formulated with MCTF can be essential for accurate analysis, rather than the perfectly conducting formulations, even at the lower THz frequencies.

Modified Combined Tangential Formulation for Stable and Accurate Analysis of Plasmonic Structures
Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-03-30)
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 ca...

Guler, Sadri; Solak, Birol; Gür, Uğur Meriç; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-09-27)
We present computational analysis of optical chiral metamaterials that consist of helical metallic elements. At optical frequencies, metals are modeled as penetrable objects with plasmonic properties. A rigorous implementation based on boundary element methods and the multilevel fast multipole algorithm is used for efficient and accurate analysis of three-dimensional structures. Numerical results demonstrate interesting polarization-rotating characteristics of such arrays with helical elements, as well as t...
On the accuracy of MFIE and CFIE in the solution of large electromagnetic scattering problems
Ergül, Özgür Salih (null; 2006-11-10)
We present the linear-linear (LL) basis functions to improve the accuracy of the magnetic-field integral equation (MFIE) and the combined-field integral equation (CFIE) for three-dimensional electromagnetic scattering problems involving large scatterers. MFIE and CFIE with the conventional Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis functions are significantly inaccurate even for large and smooth geometries, such as a sphere, compared to the solutions by the electric-field integral equation (EFIE). By using the LL funct...
Improving the accuracy of the surface integral equations for low-contrast dielectric scatterers
Ergül, Özgür Salih (2007-06-15)
Solutions of scattering problems involving low-contrast dielectric objects are considered by employing surface integral equations. A stabilization procedure based on extracting the non-radiating part of the induced currents is applied so that the remaining radiating currents can be modelled appropriately and the scattered fields from the low-contrast objects can be calculated with improved accuracy. Stabilization is applied to both tangential (T) and normal (N) formulations in order to use the benefits of d...
Modified Superformula Contours Optimized via Genetic Algorithms for Exponentially Converging 2D Solutions of MFIE
Guler, Sadri; Onol, Can; Ergül, Özgür Salih; Sever, Emrah; Dikmen, Fatih; Tuchkin, Yury A. (2017-05-25)
An infinitely smooth parametrical representation with derivatives of all orders is used, resulting into exponentially converging solutions of magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) in 2D either for TM or TE polarized excitations. A version of superformula modified for this purpose has been subject to optimization of its parameters via genetic algorithms to provide smooth parameterization for a desired boundary in two-dimensional problems. The organization of the MFIE kernel and convergence of the solution ...
