I am wondering if it is possible to get information from the eigenmode solver when doing 3D FDTD calculations? To elaborate, I have a number of mode expansion monitors being used to determine the transmission in different modes as I vary device parameters. I am setting the different modes from the mode list using the following code in a script
set(‘monitor type’, ‘2D X-normal’);
set(“mode selection”,‘user select’);
seteigensolver(‘use max index’,1);
As such I was hoping to extract some paramaters from the eigensolver based on the mode properties, such as the effective index and mode TE% etc.
When manually selecting the modes it is clear this information is generated,
Within the mode list we can see the effective index, loss, TE% etc available, what is the appropriate syntax to get this information?
From the final results I can see its possible to extract the neff of the solver using get result, ie (where Mode_4 is a mode expansion monitor)
but there is no equivalent for the other properties which can be seen in the mode list?
