Project description

The research goal is to extend the quasi-TM model, based on the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) operator, to the full-wave regime. By operating in the frequency domain, the techniques account for frequency-dependent material properties. It is also investigated how different roughness models can be incorporated in the Dtn representation of the conductors.
