Abstract

A numerical improvement of the Fourier modal method with adaptive spatial resolution is obtained. It is shown that the solutions of all the eigenvalue problems corresponding to homogeneous regions can be deduced straightforwardly from the solution of one of these problems. Numerical examples demonstrate that computation time saving can be substantial.
