I have simulated the example "Optical Scattering Off a Gold Nanosphere". I want to change the incident plane wave into a Gaussian beam, what should I do? Sincerely

See attached figure, to get to the right place. This screen capture is from v5.3 (Note that the current version is 5.5, so I suggest you upgrade anyway.) Hope this helps.
