The unconditionally stable locally 1-D (LOD) scheme is used to develop an efficient implicit body-of-revolution (BOR) finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. In the LOD-BOR-FDTD, the number of arithmetic operations of the resultant finite-difference equations is significantly reduced, when compared with the alternating-direction implicit (ADI) BOR-FDTD. Numerical results of circular cavity resonators reveal that the LOD-BOR-FDTD provides resonance frequencies identical to the ADI counterparts, with the computational time being reduced to 70%.
