nickel refraction index


#1

Dear users,
I am simulating transmission of disks made of nickel on a substrate of glass. However, I find the data very scattered in wavelength. Of course, before simulation I open the material analyzer and seem that the fit is OK.

Here is an example, in the UV region, where I am most interested:

Trans:T: -Re(T) vs lambda

lambda(nm), -Re(T)
300, 0.0246529
309.091, 0.023526
318.182, 0.0226381
327.273, 0.0223249
336.364, 0.0226889
345.455, 0.022271
354.545, 0.0213292
363.636, 0.0207521
372.727, 0.0204464
381.818, 0.0202225
390.909, 0.0204254
400, 0.0209576
….

If the fit function is applied in the simulation, why I have so few points in the result?
Thanks in advance for your kind help.

Dear @pedrueza

The number of data points in the result is controlled by monitor settings. If you want to have more data points, increase the frequency points from Edit tab of the monitor by checking the override global monitor settings as is shown below:

You can also set this from Set global monitor settings. The difference is that any changes made on Set global monitor settings will be applied to all the available monitors, while if you checked the override global monitor settings it will be applied only to the specific monitor.

Please let me know if I could answer your questions.

Thanks a lot @bkhanaliloo
Now it works fine.
Best regards
