Failed to evaluate variable Jacobian

Hi
I simulate the rib waveguide with the sio2 substrate and material of the core Er:Ta2o5
i define the lambda=1550nm in global definition>parameters, and in the step 1:frequency domain:c_const/lambda
in the electromagnetic wave field i define 2 port for the core(Er:Ta2o5):
port 1:port type :rectangular and wave excitation is on
port 2: port type :rectangular and wave excitation is off
mode type is TE,mode number :10

when i want to simulate,i am getting the following error:

Failed to evaluate variable Jacobian.
- Variable: mod1.emw.tE0modex_2
- Geometry: 1
- Boundary: 7
do you know how to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance for the comments

Michael

try with a different name for lambda, such as lambda_1

Hi Samuele

I do it but it does'nt worked. do you have other suggestion?

Thanks in advance

Most likely your problem is with boundary condition at boundary 7. It's hard to tell how to fix it without knowing what boundary 7 is.

Hi Alexander
Thanks for your response
I send you the schematic file and marked the 7 boundary.
Thanks in advance

What's the BC on boundary 7?

Hi Alexander
sorry, what is the BC ?

Hi

BC = Boundary Condition in this case value set by a "boundary node" in your physics tree

--
Good luck
