Returns the sum of the amplitude squares for all electric field components, i.e. it returns |Ex|2+|Ey|2+|Ez|2.

 

Supported Product: FDTD, MODE

 

Syntax

Description

out = getelectric( "monitorname");

Returns |Ex|2+|Ey|2+|Ez|2 from the monitor.

getelectric( "monitorname", option);

The optional argument, option, can have a value of 1 or 2. If it is 2, the data is unfolded where possible according to the symmetry or anti-symmetric boundaries if it comes from a monitor that intersect such a boundary at x min, y min or z min. The default value of option is 2.

 

Examples

This example creates an image plot of |E|^2 for a z-normal frequency monitor in the x-y plane.

 

E2=getelectric("output");

x=getdata("output","x");

y=getdata("output","y");

image(x,y,E2);
