Abstract

This paper presents a numerically efficient approach for simulating nanowires at infrared and long optical wavelengths. A computationally efficient circuit-equivalent modeling approach based on the electric-field integral-equation (EFIE) formulation is employed to simulate the highly dispersive behavior of nanowires at short wavelengths. The proposed approach can be used both for frequency-domain and for time-domain EFIE formulations. In comparison with widely used full-wave solutions achieved through the finite-difference time-domain method, the circuit-based EFIE formulation results in a sharp reduction of the computational resources while retaining high accuracy.
