Fiber polish angle


Hello everyone,

I am trying to add a fiber to my 3D-FDTD simulation. I am doing that using addcircle; command. I manipulate the rotation to make the fiber tilted to an angle.
The problem is that I want to add a polish angle. Can I do that in simulation?

Thanks in advanced


Dear @omnia.nawwar

Maybe you can override the fiber with an etched material?
For further discussions, please provide a sketch/figure of the geometry so that we both are on the same page.



Dear @bkhanaliloo
Thank you for your response. Sounds good and easy solution. I am showing the figure of my fiber tilted over a grating coupler.
If there is a better solution, please let me know.


Dear @omnia.nawwar

Thank you for the additional information.
I am not still quite clear on what your polished fiber look like. For complicated geometries, planar solid structures may be used.

I hope this was useful.
Please do not hesitate to ask should you have any further questions.

It looks like my colleague was working with another user in a similar case that might be of interest to you:
