AB - The 3D implementation of a hybrid analytical/numerical variant of the coupled-mode theory is discussed.
Eigenmodes of the constituting dielectric channels are computed numerically. The frequency-domain
coupled-mode models then combine these into fully vectorial approximations for the optical electromagnetic
fields of the composite structure. Following a discretization of amplitude functions by 1D finite elements, pro-
cedures from the realm of finite-element numerics are applied to establish systems of linear equations for the then-
discrete modal amplitudes. Examples substantiate the functioning of the technique and allow for some numerical
assessment. The full 3D simulations are highly efficient in memory consumption, moderately demanding in com-
putational time, and, in regimes of low radiative losses, sufficiently accurate for practical design. Our results
include the perturbation of guided modes by changes of the refractive indices, the interaction of waves in parallel,
horizontally or vertically coupled straight waveguides, and a series of crossings of potentially overlapping channels
with fairly arbitrary relative positions and orientations.

AB - We apply the Discontinuous Galerkin Time Domain (DGTD) method for numerical simulations of the second harmonic generation from various metallic nanostructures. A Maxwell–Vlasov hydrodynamic model is used to describe the nonlinear effects in the motion of the excited free electrons in a metal. The results are compared with the corresponding experimental measurements for split-ring resonators and plasmonic gap antennas.

AB - Frequently, optical integrated circuits combine elements (waveguide channels, cavities), the simulation of which is well established through mature numerical eigenproblem solvers. It remains to predict the interaction of these modes. We address this task by a general, “Hybrid” variant (HCMT) of Coupled Mode Theory. Using methods from finite-element numerics, the properties of a circuit are approximated by superpositions of eigen-solutions for its constituents, leading to quantitative, computationally cheap, and easily interpretable models.

AB - Typical optical integrated circuits combine elements, like straight and curved waveguides, or cavities, the simulation and design of which is well established through numerical eigenproblem-solvers. It remains to predict the interaction of these modes. We address this task by a ”Hybrid” variant (HCMT) of Coupled Mode Theory. Using methods from finite-element numerics, the optical properties of a circuit are approximated by superpositions of eigen-solutions for its constituents, leading to quantitative, low-dimensional, and interpretable models in the frequency domain. Spectral scans are complemented by the direct computation of supermode properties (spectral positions and linewidths, coupling-induced phase shifts). This contribution outlines the theoretical background, and discusses briefly limitations and implementational details, with the help of an example of a 2-D coupled-resonator-optical-waveguide configuration.

AB - The electromagnetic field in the vicinity of sharp edges needs a special treatment in numeric calculation whenever accurate, fast converging results are necessary. One of the fundamental works concerning field singularities has been proposed in 1972 [1] and states that the electromagnetic energy density must be integrable over any finite
domain, even if this domain contains singularities. It is shown, that the magnetic field H(, ϕ) and electric field E(, ϕ) are proportional to ∝ (t−1) for → 0. The variable is the distance to the edge and t has to fulfill the integrability condition and thus is restricted to 0 < t < 1. This result is often used to reduce the error corresponding to the singularity without increasing the numerical effort [2 - 5]. For this purpose, a correction factor K is estimated by inserting the proportionality into the wave equation. It is shown, that this method improves the accuracy of the result significantly, however the order of convergence is often not studied. In [4] a method to modify the material parameters in order to use analytic results to improve the numeric calculation is presented. In this contribution we will - inspired by the scheme given in [4] - develop a new method to estimate a correction factor for perfect conducting materials (PEC) and demonstrate the improvement of the results compared to the standard edge correction. Therefore analytic results (comparable to [1]) are consequently merged with the scheme in [4]. The main goal of this work is the calculation of the second harmonic generation (SHG) in the wave response of so-called metamaterials [6]. Frequently these structures
contain sharp metallic edges with field singularities at the interfaces which have a strong impact on the SHG signals. Thus, an accurate simulation of singularities is highly important. However, the following approach can also be applied to many other setups, and one of them is shown in the example below.
