Abstract

The three-dimensional split-field finite-difference time-domain (SF-FDTD) method is combined with the total-field–scattered-field method for injecting a plane wave. A formulation is derived for calculating the incidence transformed fields of SF-FDTD on a one-dimensional auxiliary grid. The resulting fields obtained in the scattered zone are used to calculate the far fields, based on a proposed fully time-domain near-to-far-field transformation. The far-field information is used to calculate the extinction cross section of the periodic structure under oblique incidence. To analyze metallic periodic structures, a formulation with a reduced number of variables is proposed based on the auxiliary differential equation method for dispersive media.
