Abstract

The modelling of 3D optical pulse propagation in linear materials using the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method is discussed. A full 3D formulation run on a Massively Parallel Processor and a Body of Revolution formulation are described and results presented for the interaction of a Gaussian beam with a linear thin lens. The extension of the method to include non-linear effects is outlined.
