By Allen Taflove,Steven G. Johnson,Ardavan Oskooi

Advances in photonics and nanotechnology have the capability to revolutionize humanity’s skill to speak and compute. To pursue those advances, it's essential to appreciate and correctly version interactions of sunshine with fabrics comparable to silicon and gold on the nanoscale, i.e., the span of some tens of atoms laid part by way of part. those interactions are ruled by way of the elemental Maxwell’s equations of classical electrodynamics, supplemented via quantum electrodynamics.

This e-book provides the present state of the art in formulating and enforcing computational types of those interactions. Maxwell’s equations are solved utilizing the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) process, pioneered through the senior editor, whose past Artech apartment books during this quarter are one of the most sensible ten most-cited within the background of engineering. you find crucial advances in all parts of FDTD and PSTD computational modeling of electromagnetic wave interactions.

This state of the art source is helping you realize the newest advancements in computational modeling of nanoscale optical microscopy and microchip lithography. you furthermore may discover state-of-the-art info in modeling nanoscale plasmonics, together with nonlocal dielectric services, molecular interactions, and multi-level semiconductor achieve. different serious themes contain nanoscale biophotonics, specifically for detecting early-stage cancers, and quantum vacuum, together with the Casimir impression and blackbody radiation.
