Knowledge Base

Projects a given power or field profile monitor to the far field to a 1 meter radius semi-circle. This is similar to the farfield2d script command except the complex electric fields are returned, rather than field intensity. The data is returned as matrix of NxP if one frequency point is projected, or NxPx3 when multiple frequency points are projected where N is the resolution of the far field projection, P is the number frequency points projected, and the last index refers to Er, Eθ and Ez, in cylindrical coordinates. For TM simulations, this function gives precisely the result of farfieldvector2d because the only non-zero field component is Ez.


Supported Product: FDTD, MODE




out = farfieldpolar2d( "mname",...);

Returns the polar complex electric fields. Same arguments as farfield2d.



This example plots the amplitude of the Er component of the far field projection of a 1D monitor called "monitor". In this example the second frequency point is projected. If the monitor only contains data at one frequency, the second argument is not required.



Er = abs(pinch(E,2,1)); # amplitude of Er


plot(theta,Er,"angle (deg)","Er far field"); 


For additional examples see Far field projection toolbox.
