Abstract

A variety of problems in device and materials design require the rapid forward modeling of Maxwell's equations in complex micro-structured materials. By combining high-order accurate integral equation methods with classical multiple scattering theory, we have created an effective simulation tool for materials consisting of an isotropic background in which are dispersed a large number of micro- or nano-scale metallic or dielectric substructures.
