Numerical simulation plays an essential role in the study of photonics. Standard numerical methods such as the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method and the frequency-domain finite element method (FEM), are widely used, but they have various practical limitations. Many photonic structures and devices have special geometry features because they are designed within the limitation of current fabrication technology. It has been realized that special numerical or semi-analytic methods may be developed for classes of photonic structures and devices with certain geometric features, and these methods are often much more efficient than the general numerical methods. For example, the mode expansion method (modal method) is widely used for structures consisting of segements or layers that are invariant in a spatial variable, the scattering matrix method and other operator-marching methods are useful for multi-layer structures,  the Dirichlet-to-Neumann map method is useful for devices with many identical unit cells, and the vertical mode expansion method is useful for 3D structures with multiple 1D material profiles. The purpose of this mini-symposium is to identify valuable geometric features for some important classes of photonic structures and devices, develop new or improve existing computational techniques that exploit these geometric features.
