A new model of dispersion for metals leading to a more accurate modeling of plasmonic structures using the FDTD method



We present FDTD simulations results obtained using the Drude Critical points model. This model enables spectroscopic studies of metallic structures over wider wavelength ranges than usually used, and it facilitates the study of structures made of several metals.
