I am trying out a simulation with laser gain medium for which CW normalization is disabled. I am getting different power transmission(not normalized) and field intensity for Bloch BC and Periodic BC for normal incidence. As I understand the results should be exactly same for normal incidence. However, for my case it isn’t.
In this simple 3D simulation file for normal incidence of light, Bloch BC along x and y direction produces E field of 4.32e-6 whereas, Periodic BC produces 2.16e-6. Can anyone explain these results?
