A technique is proposed for the generation of planewaves in the total-field scattered-field (TFSF) formulation of the FDTD method. The method is developed using the 1D properties of a planewave and optimized projection of the 3D finite difference operators to the 1D domain. The result is an efficient and accurate planewave source that can be propagated on six 1D grids concurrent with the main simulation, and that is perfectly matched to the main 2D/3D FDTD domain for any source function. Numerical simulations show that the technique is valid for any angle of propagation, and for any gridcell aspect ratio, with non-physical reflections in the scattered field domain on the order of machine precision (-300 dB).
