This paper presents an application of the constained interpolation profile basis set (CIP-BS) method to electromagnetic fields analyses. Electromagnetic fields can be expanded in terms of multi-dimensional CIP basis functions, and the Galerkin method can then be applied to obtain a system of linear equations. In the present study, we focus on a two-dimensional problem with TMz polarization. In order to examine the precision of the CIP-BS method, TE202 resonant mode in a rectangular cavity is analyzed. The numerical results show that CIP-BS method has better performance than the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method when the time step is small. Then an absorbing boundary condition based on the perfectly matched layer (PML) is formulated, and the absorption performance is demonstrated. Finally, the propagation in an inhomogeneous medium is computed by using the proposed method, and it is observed that in the CIP-BS method, smooth variation of material constants is effectively formulated without additional computational costs, and that accurate results are obtained in comparison with the FDTD method even if the permittivity is high.
