In this paper, we report our efforts to model split-ring resonators (SRRs) and their large arrays accurately and efficiently in a sophisticated simulation environment based on recent advances in the computational electromagnetics. The resulting linear system obtained from the simultaneous discretization of the geometry and Maxwell's equations is solved iteratively with the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. As an example, we present an array of 125 SRRs showing a negative effective permeability about 92 GHz.

We present accurate full-wave analysis of deformed nanowires using a rigorous simulation environment based on the multilevel fast multipole algorithm. Single nanowires as well as their arrays are deformed randomly in order to understand the effects of deformations to scattering characteristics of these structures. Results of hundreds of simulations are considered for statistically meaningful analysis of deformation effects. We show that deformations significantly enhance the forward-scattering abilities of ...

We present electromagnetic optimizations by heuristic algorithms supported by approximate forms of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA). Optimizations of complex structures, such as antennas, are performed by considering each trial as an electromagnetic problem that can be analyzed via MLFMA and its approximate forms. A dynamic accuracy control is utilized in order to increase the efficiency of optimizations. Specifically, in the proposed scheme, the accuracy is used as a parameter of the optimiz...
Nested Iterative Solutions of Electromagnetic Problems Using Approximate Forms of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Algorithm
Onol, Can; Ucuncu, Arif; Karaosmanoglu, Bariscan; Ergül, Özgür Salih (2017-03-24)
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...
