We proposed a new method, implicit symplectic finite difference time domain (FDTD) method) which inherits the good properties from the conventional FDTD method, simplecticity and the conservation of energy. The proposed method is free from the Courant-Friedrics-Lewy condition at the same time.

In this paper, we show our method is more efficient than the conventional FDTD method using a typical problem, a polarization control in optical near and far fields of the designing the shape of a metal nanostructure.
