Analyzing Results in Ansys Lumerical FDTD — Lesson 4

Analysis Methods

Once a simulation is run, it goes into Analysis mode and results are available. In this video, you will learn how to access and visualize the results.

Demo

The following video is a continuation of the demonstration in the earlier “Running the simulation” subsection. Here, the simulation file has already been run and is in Analysis mode. You will learn how to check what monitor results are available and plot the monitor results in the visualizer. You will also learn how to run a script file that collects and plots monitor results. The script file used to generate the plots can be downloaded here.

To follow along with the demonstration, you can run the script file to set up the simulation file that is demonstrated in the video, then run the simulation so it is in Analysis mode before starting the video.
