Significant advancements in physics of nano-optics have led to the development of advanced models. The most advanced method for simulations of optical properties of nanomaterials is based on the finite-element method (FEM). FEM discretizes the simulation domain using special nonuniform and nonrectangular meshes as compared with finite-difference schemes. Advancements in nanofabrication methods allow experimenters to control the nanostructure-fabrication process to a significant degree of precision. This requires the development of a systematic design tool that can be used to optimize the geometry of nanoconstructs to design optical materials with specific desired functionalities.
