Knowledge Base

Returns the total spectral average intensity injected into the simulation by the source. The average intensity is equal to the average power divided by the source area. See the sourcepower_pavg command and the Units and normalization - Spectral averaging section for more information.

 

Supported Product: FDTD, MODE

 

Syntax

Description

out = sourceintensity_avg;

Returns the spectrally averaged source intensity as defined above.

out = sourceintensity_avg(option);

The additional 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.

out = sourceintensity_avg(option, "sourcename");

This function makes it possible to perform the normalization using the spectrum of one source, rather than the sum of all the sources.
