Ansys Lumerical EME — Convergence Testing

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

In this course, we will discuss the sources of error in an Ansys Lumerical EME simulation and how to verify the accuracy of simulation results by using convergence testing and error diagnostics.

Recommended Courses

This course will cover the basic settings of the Ansys Lumerical EME solver region, including the simulation region geometry, cell definition, periodicity and boundary conditions. Note that many of the settings are shared with the FDE solver settings. Those settings will not be covered here. See the Lumerical FDE Learning Track for more information.

In this course, we will discuss ports, cells, and monitors. It will cover how to add, and set up ports, and select port modes. This will be followed by a discussion of monitor types and how to set them up.

In this course, we will look at the results after running Ansys Lumerical EME simulations and discuss how to interpret those results. Examples demonstrating how to use the periodicity settings and the propagation sweep tool will also be presented.
