I initially made my own 1x2 MMI since I want to see the power development for different widths and then use it to calculate the length. (it will have a slightly different purpose and thus I made my own setup)
However when I tried running it the EME solver didn’t want to run.
So I downloaded the files from lumerical for a 1x2 MMI https://kb.lumerical.com/en/pic_passive_waveguide_couplers_mmi.html
And just tried both running the script on that page and also running the EME by pressing the run button.
Neither worked and it just didn’t want to run, the error I get when running the script is:
Warning: /tmp/scratch/Bob_twinkle/Pix4Life_simulations/MMI_Test.lsf line 2: in run: there was no simulation data. The simulation failed to run.
Error: /tmp/scratch/Bob_twinkle/Pix4Life_simulations/MMI_Test.lsf line 3: emepropagate cannot be used while in layout mode.
It says that there is no simulation data, which is really odd because this is literally the file I got from the lumerical webpage.
I’m using a student/educational license and the FDE solver in MODE solutions is working just fine.
I was wondering what is going on and if someone can help me to solve this ASAP please.
Note: lumerical is installed on a Unix(linux) server on which I do NOT have administration rights
