varFDTD can't work with the result of Device(electrics or thermal)?

varFDTD can’t work with the result of Device(electrics or thermal)?
I want to simulate a thermal control MZI or ring in the plane optical circuit. But when I send the result(tempurature profile like 3D or 2D) calculated by device into the varFDTD program, it doesn’t work. I want to ask whether the varFDTD work with Device to make some part of the component in varFDTD index chang?

Dear @zc19900505

Unfortunately we don’t have any example in varFDTD that shows this type of applications. I had some internal discussion with product manager, but I am not convinced whether it is a fundamental limit of varFDTD or its actually a bug. I noticed that varFDTD works fine with the electronic results of Device. Please see a similar post in this regard:

Thanks
