Near-to-far field transformations for radiative and guided waves

Abstract : Light emitters or scatterers embedded in stratified media may couple energy to both free space and guided modes of the stratified structure. For a thorough analysis of such structures, it is important to evaluate the angular intensity distribution of both the free-space-propagative and guided waves. In this work, we propose an original method based on Lorentz-reciprocity theorem and on the computation of the near-field around the emitters or scatterers, to efficiently calculate the free-space and guided radiation diagrams with a high accuracy. We also provide an open-source code that may be used with virtually any Maxwells solver. The numerical tool may help to engineer various devices, such as light-emitting diodes or nanoantennas to achieve directional and efficient radiative spontaneous decays in free space and guided optics.
