I’m using FDTD Solution to simulate the waveguide collection of emission sources. I used a dipole source lying on the waveguide.
I want to obtain the fraction between the power collected by the waveguide and the power emitted by the dipole. I’m thinking of doing a overlap analysis between them, but I don’t figure out a certain way to do this.
- Does anyone have experiences about this?
And I found a paper which is quite relevant to what I’m looking for. The authors also used Lumerical to simulate it and they got some technical support from Lumerical. There is one figure talking about the collected power part from a radiation pattern.
2. Does anyone have a clue how they defined the regions of surface collection and end collection?
3. Does someone know how to plot the radiation pattern like that?
This is what I have. It takes about 30 mins to finish the simulation. The file is too big to upload, therefore I put a link for the file down below. Really appreciate for any helping and advice.
