Abstract

A methodology using the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method to simulate the lasing and the photons transport behavior of all three scattering regimes in random material is developed. FDTD is used to solve Maxwell equations for a complete electromagnetic analysis of arbitrary linear and nonlinear structure. To simulate the randomized material, the grain size and the refraction index of the grain particles are assigned by random number generator with either uniform of Gaussian distribution. The shape of the grain size is assigned randomly to count for additional randomness.
