A new efficient boundary condition of finite element method (FEM) by using propagation operator is proposed. In this method, input, and output ports are terminated on their own boundaries instead of using perfectly matched layer (PML) which requires expanding the computational window. Moreover, this boundary condition can consider all modes including radiation modes without mode expansion. The propagation operator is efficiently calculated by Denman-Beavers iteration (DBI). The electromagnetic

In addition, we present a technique based on scattering operator method which can reduce the computational complexity of FEM. Three numerical results show that the present scheme is more accurate, and stable than conventional approximate boundary conditions such as using Padé approximation in both TE, and TM modes.
