Abstract:

An unsplit-field higher order nearly perfectly matched layer (NPML) based on the auxiliary differential equation approach is introduced in three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain lattices. The proposed scheme has the advantage of both the NPML scheme and the higher order concept in terms of the improved absorbing performance and considerable computational efficiency. By incorporating with the generalized material independent concept, the proposed implementation is independent of the material’s type. Thus, it has the advantages of terminating arbitrary media without changing the updated equations in the PML regions. Its effectiveness and efficiency is further demonstrated through numerical examples.
