Abstract
The band structures of dispersive photonic crystals are numerically investigated. Based on the fmite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method with some auxiliary variables, time-stepping formulas are derived to compute the evolution of electromagnetic fields. The photomc crystals made of dispersive materials can be described either by the Lorentzian model or by the Drude model. In this paper, we describe how to use the time domain technique to calculate the dispersion relation of photonic crystals and then introduce the recursive convolution scheme to treat the photonic crystals with frequency-dependent materials. Band structures of photomc crystals without dispersion are calculated with the conventional FDTD time-stepping formulas and those with Lorentzian type dispersion and Drude type dispersion are also calculated with the recursive convolution scheme.
