Abstract

Numerical experiments using the paraxial finite-difference beam propagation method have been performed with the following boundary conditions: perfectly matched layer, Higdon absorbing boundary conditions, complementary operators method, and extended complementary operators method. We have shown that Higdon operators must be modified for the paraxial wave equation to take into account the spectrum of incident rays on the boundaries of the computational domain. Reflection coefficients, accuracy, numerical dissipation/gain, memory requirements, and time computation are compared and discussed for these absorbing techniques.
