Abstract

In this article, we review a number of theoretical and computational methods used to model the electromagnetic response of nanostructured metal films, including the finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD), the rigorous coupled-wave analysis, and the modal expansion method. Applications of the aforementioned techniques are also presented, including the dephasing of electromagnetic fields inside an isolated slit, the generation of surface plasmon polaritons from an isolated hole, and the extraordinary optical transmission through hole and pillar arrays.
