Most of the example given for Photonic Crystals using Lumerical FDTD use diople source instead of Mode source (like finding bandgap, dispersion diagram and transmission etc.). However, most of the example given for Phototnic Integrated Circuits (like Micro Ring Resonators) use Mode source instead of dipole source. If I have a structure where both Micro ring resonators and photonic crystals are present simultaneously (like in the research paper, open access, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4730207/), how should I proceed to solve for the transmission of the composite structure. I can mail my file if required.
Thanks and Regards
