Simulation 2D projection of scatteting of a Si antenna



I’m trying to simulate using FDTD, some kind of effect of rotation of the scattering direction in a particular structure of Si. The single elements is a V shape Si antenna . I setup my monitors , but I don’t know how to plot the right information of the Electric field and Magnetic field scattering effect in a polar coordinate graph.(The monitor are setting for far field scattering and cross section)
The incident source is a TFSF wave source preferable setting for 755 nm and 660 nm wavelengths.
Adjunct you will fine my fsp file.I’m pretty new on Lumerical, any help will be appreciate

I believe the you are trying to do some work related to the following paper:

The same authors have another paper with plasmonic nanoparticles, where the report the details of their analysis in the supporting information.

Here is a link to that paper.

I will take a look at your file and get back to you. I have been interested in performing a similar calculation for my system.

Hi @rod
In Lumerical’s knowledge base there is a new chapter about antennas.
In this page there are three chapters. The chapter about rectangular probe antenna has an example of electric and magnetic field
