Hello, could someone please explain to me the procedure to make a slanted cone in FDTD solver. I was trying to replicate this figure:
I tried this one, but the index profile is not correct. And also the meshing process doesn’t begin. I have attached the simulation file and the index profile.glass cone.fsp (336.0 KB)
glass cone_p0.log (803 Bytes)
I took the code from this page How to draw a (truncated) cone in DEVICE using the 'planar solid' object and Radial doping of cone structure
Thank you for the question. Which method did you use from the post you linked? It mentions two methods, one with a planar solid and one that uses a truncated cone. I believe that the truncated cone method outlined in this post should give you the shape you need:
Please let me know if this is not what you need. (It seems like the pictures are difficult to see in the quote. Please take a look at the original post to see the pictures in a higher resolution)
This might be because of the way you defined the cone. Did you use the planar solid or the truncated cone method?
