Huygens subgridding for the grid-based solution of the Maxwell equations is a new and promising technique that enables accurate computation of mixed systems, by efficiently reducing the computational cost for simulating structures where increased spatial resolution is required in part of space. The Huygens subgridding approach has previously been derived and tested for perfect electric conductors and Debye media. This work introduces a Huygens subgridding method that is applicable to Lorentz media, thus opening a range of new applications in the field of plasmonics.
