icon_srcs_dipole Point sources (dipole)

Oscillating dipoles act as sources in Maxwell's equation to produce electromagnetic fields. Dipoles are used to simulate point source radiators, such as radiation from a fluorescent molecule.


In MODE, for the 2.5D FDTD solver, the orientation of the dipole source partially depends on whether the polarization of the propagator simulation is set to TE or TM.  Depending on the simulation polarization and dipole type, the theta, phi values may be locked.
