Abstract

A parallel implementation of the multilevel fast multipole algorithm (MLFMA) is developed for fast and accurate solutions of electromagnetics problems involving complex plasmonic metamaterial structures. Composite objects that consist of multiple penetrable regions, such as dielectric, lossy, and plasmonic parts, are formulated rigorously with surface integral equations and solved iteratively via MLFMA. Using the hierarchical strategy for the parallelization, the developed implementation is capable of simulating realistic structures discretized with millions of unknowns.
