Description: Foreigners developed electromagnetic FDTD method Toolkit Electromagnetic Finite-Difference Time-Domain (EmFDTD) is a basic two-dimensional FDTD code developed at the School of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology. This code has been written based on the standard Yee s FDTD algorithm. Applications include propagation, scattering, and diffraction of electromagnetic wavesin homogeneous and non-homogeneous isotropic mediafor in-plane propagating waves. Negative permittivites or permeabilities as well as dispersion is not included.Zero, Periodic, and Perfectly Matched Layer boundaryconditions may be selectively applied to the solution domain.The program is best suited for study of propagation anddiffraction of electromagnetic waves in Photonic Crystalstructures.EmFDTD is written in MATLAB language and has beentested under MATLAB 5.0 and higher versions.
