XFdtd is a

finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) EM solver that is capable of handling large simulations with a minimal amount of RAM and processing them quickly using NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs).

The

finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method has been widely used to study electromagnetic (EM) wave interaction with a wide variety of materials due to its robustness and its ability to calculate accurate broadband response via a single simulation [1, 2].

The

Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method achieved discretization of Maxwell's equations in the space and time dimensions.

The

finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method for Maxwell's equations, which was first proposed by Yee (see [1], also called Yee's scheme) in 1966, is a very efficient numerical algorithm in computational electromagnetism (see [2]) and has been applied in a broad range of practical problems by combining absorbing boundary conditions (see [3-7] and the references therein).

[14] used the

finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method to simulate the outstanding problem in acoustic logging while drilling (LWD).

It covers the basics of the electromagnetic theory of light; aspects of the beam propagation method, such as Von Neumann analysis and boundary conditions; vectorial and three-dimensional beam propagation techniques; special topics, such as the wide-angle beam propagation method, discontinuities, the bidirectional beam propagation method, active waveguides, the time domain beam propagation method, and the

finite-difference time-domain method; and beam propagation method analysis of integrated photonic devices.

The 3D

finite-difference time-domain method was used to observe the distribution of the electric field (generated excitons).

The electric field intensity distribution in the vicinity of the damage sites is calculated using the 3D
