Perfectly matched layers (PML's) are derived for cylindrical and spherical finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) grids. The formulation relies on the complex coordinate stretching approach. Two-dimensional (2-D) cylindrical and three-dimensional (3-D) spherical staggered-grid FDTD codes are written based on the time-domain versions of the equations. Numerical simulations validate the formulation by showing very good agreement between the perfectly matched layer-finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) results and the free-space analytic solutions.
