Description:

We extend Berenger's perfectly matched layers (PML) to conductive media. A finite-difference-time-domain (FDTD) algorithm with PML as an absorbing boundary condition is developed for solutions of Maxwell's equations in inhomogeneous, conductive media. For a perfectly matched layer in a conductive medium, an additional term involving the time-integrated electric field has to be introduced to account for the coupling between the loss from the PML and the normal conduction loss. This absorbing boundary condition is proven to be highly effective for the absorption of outgoing waves at the computational edge even when a dipping interface intersects the outer boundary. The algorithm is validated by analytical solutions, and is also compared with Liao's absorbing boundary condition. Numerical results for subsurface radar measurements are shown to demonstrate the applications of this method.
