Hi Lumerical KX
This is my first post, and it might already be answered but so far I haven’t been able to find it.
When I simulate photonic crystals cavities my simulations include a Q-analysis and a frequency domain field profile. Because of how the tutorial on photonic crystals are set up (I still pretty much follow that for new simulations) I run the simulation once, get the resonance frequency from the Q-analysis and then rerun the simulation with that resonance frequency as input in the frequency domain field profile monitor.
My ultimate wish is to do both in a single simulation and cut my simulation time in half, but I’m unsure if this is possible due to the nature of FDTD? (I come from a FEM background)
My slightly less demanding wish is to automate the simulation, so it doesn’t reduce the total simulation time, but runs the simulation twice and I in the end get all the infoI require. (I often simulate on a cluster, so this would ease my workflow.)
I hope you can help me with either or both!
