Abstract

The use of an oblique coordinate system with the finite difference beam propagation method has previously been demonstrated to offer significant computational advantages over using rectangular coordinates for a wide range of practical optical structures. The effects of finite mesh resolution, step size, and order of the algorithm in terms of numerical dispersion and dissipation are here investigated and quantified for the first time.
