Three Numerical Eigensolvers for 3-D Cavity Resonators Filled With Anisotropic and Nonconductive Media

27 Jul 2020  ·  Jiang Wei, Liu Jie ·

This paper mainly investigates the classic resonant cavity problem with anisotropic and nonconductive media, which is a linear vector Maxwell's eigenvalue problem. The finite element method based on edge element of the lowest-order and standard linear element is used to solve this type of 3-D closed cavity problem... In order to eliminate spurious zero modes in the numerical simulation, the divergence-free condition supported by Gauss' law is enforced in a weak sense. After the finite element discretization, the generalized eigenvalue problem with a linear constraint condition needs to be solved. Penalty method, augmented method and projection method are applied to solve this difficult problem in numerical linear algebra. The advantages and disadvantages of these three computational methods are also given in this paper. Furthermore, we prove that the augmented method is free of spurious modes as long as the anisotropic material is not magnetic lossy. The projection method based on singular value decomposition technique can be used to solve the resonant cavity problem. Moreover, the projection method {cannot} introduce any spurious modes. At last, several numerical experiments are carried out to verify our theoretical results. read more
