For electromagnetic FDTD simulations we are using Electromagnetic Template Library (EMTL) developed by Kintech Lab.


  • Compilation under UNIX and Windows
  • MPI parallelization
  • Anisotropic and dispersive media
  • Subpixel smoothing
  • Perfectly mathed layer absorbing boundaries (UPML and CPML)
  • Dipole sources
  • Total-Field / Scattered-Field wave generation technique
  • Near-to-Far-Field Transformation
  • Fast Fourier transform of the results


New algorithms

  • subpixel smoothing for dispersive media PDF
  • iterative technique for analysis of periodic structures at oblique incidence PDF
  • back absorbing layers technique to reduce numerical reflection from PML PDF
  • modified Lorentz terms to fit complicated dispersive profiles PDF
