I’m pretty new to bandstructure and lumerical so I was hoping to get some help with simulation parameters.
- I’m trying to replicate the Planar 3D Hex example but scaled up to my parameters of interest (https://kb.lumerical.com/en/diffractive_optics_pc_bandstructure_3d_planar_hex.html)
I’m changing a = 0.752, r=0.188, d=0.5.
What I’m not sure about is how to change the dipole cloud parameters to match my simulation:
I’m also a little unsure if I sure be simulating kx, ky, kz. Why was kx only simulated? What determines the value of kx?
Then I would like to do the same but for a W1 waveguide (same PhC parameters). What would need to change in this case?
Thanks in advance!
