I have been modifying the mie3d sample files provided here on Lumerical’s website in order to simulate a single nanoparticle on a silicon substrate. I have also modified the provided analysis script to accommodate for structure names. When I run the analysis script, I obtain the following cross sectional results:
Next, I decided to build an identical simulation region myself in the structures tab and run the same analysis script. Curiously, I obtained different results:
From what I can tell, everything defined in the simulation region I created is identical to the first. However, there clearly is something that I did not account for. Could someone perhaps help me look through my simulation files to see what I may have overlooked?
Thanks in advance.
