We consider the two-dimensional time-dependent Schrödinger equation with the new compact nine-point scheme in space and the Crank-Nicolson difference scheme in time. For the resulting difference equation we derive discrete transparent boundary conditions in order to get highly accurate solutions for open boundary problems. Numerical experiments illustrate the perfect absorption of outgoing wave independently of their impact angle at the boundary. Finally, we apply inhomogeneous discrete transparent boundary conditions to the transient simulation of quantum waveguides.
