In a MODE script, I used copydcard to save mode profiles to the deck. Is there a way to later pull data (e.g., electric field data for plotting) from the named d-card using script commands?
Yes, it is possible by using getdata command.
I have “test_mode1” in my deck:
will return all objects with available data in my FDE simulation. I can see that besides the modes in the mode list, I have also “::test_mode1” object at my disposal:
Then I can inquiry what type of data are within this object:
surface_normal dimension f neff loss TE polarization fraction waveguide TE/TM fraction x y z Ex Ey Ez Hx Hy Hz Z0
Hence, if I wish to get Ex from the mode in my deck, I use the following command:
and the Ex matrix will be available in my script workspace now:
