Abstract

This paper summarizes the present state and future directions of applying finite-difference and finite-volume time-domain techniques for Maxwell's equations on supercomputers to model complex electromagnetic wave interactions with structures. Applications so far have been dominated by radar cross-section technology, but by no means are limited to this area. In fact, the gains we have made place us on the threshold of being able to make tremendous contributions to non-defense electronics and optical technology. Some of the most interesting research in these commercial areas is summarized.
