Comparative study of FDTD-adopted numerical algorithms for Kerr nonlinearities

Maksymov, Ivan; Lavrinenko, Andrei; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


Accurate finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) modeling of optical pulse propagation in nonlinear media usually implies the use of auxiliary differential equation (ADE) techniques. The updating of electric field in full-vectorial 3-D ADE FDTD modeling of the optical Kerr effect and two-photon absorption in optical media is proceeded conventionally through the iterative solution of nonlinear algebraic equations. Here, we study three approaches for the field update including simple noniterative...[Show more]
