This is a report on an effective simulation method for analyses of optical material such as photonic crystal materials, Photonics Crystal Fibers… This method is based on the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) algorithm. We observed the temporal dynamics of light waves in a bent fiber in a simulation, and obtained the electromagnetic fields as a function of optical wavelength for the commercial photonic crystal layer or fibers. The accuracy of this method was verified by good agreement between the simulation and experimental data.
