Abstract

We present an eigenmode expansion technique for calculating the properties of a dipole emitter inside a micropillar. We consider a solution domain of infinite extent, implying no outer boundary conditions for the electric field, and expand the field on analytic eigenmodes. In contrast to finite-sized simulation domains, this avoids the issue of parasitic reflections from artificial boundaries. We compute the Purcell factor in a two-dimensional micropillar and explore two discretization techniques for the continuous radiation modes. Specifically, an equidistant and a nonequidistant discretization are employed, and while both converge, only the nonequidistant discretization exhibits uniform convergence. These results demonstrate that the method leads to more accurate results than existing simulation techniques and constitutes a promising basis for further work.
