Finite-Difference Time-Domain Simulation of Light Propagation in Waveguide Arrays
N. Dadashzadeh and O. G. Romanov

The theoretical and numerical models for simulation of light propagation through a system of coupled waveguides have been derived based on Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method for direct solution of Maxwell equations. The main features of the modes of energy transfer between two coupled waveguides, and discrete diffraction in the system of several coupled waveguides have been studied systematically.

Key words: light pulses, coupled waveguides, Maxwell equations, numerical modeling, FDTD method
