FDTD 101: Using FDTD to Compute a Transmission Spectrum

Lecture 2: Using FDTD to Compute a Transmission Spectrum

In this lecture, we show how to use FDTD to solve a basic EM problem involving the transmission of light though a slab of material.

- How to set up the simulation using periodic boundary conditions and a plane wave source.
- How to use a broadband pulse to compute the normalized transmission over a range of wavelengths.
- How the FDTD results agree with those computed with analytical methods.

For Python setup used in this lecture, please see related FDTD Python Tutorial below.
