3D optical waveguide error
Posted Jun 10, 2013, 2:53 AM EDT RF & Microwave Engineering, Wave Optics Version 4.3b 6 Replies
What I'm trying to do is basically simulate an optical fiber in 3D. I thought it would be a simple task but I'm running into an error.
I created an optical fibre with an air cladding. The fiber is very thin (.5 um radius).
I thought all I would have to do was create an input port and and exit port, perform a boundary mode analysis on both ports and then add the frequency domain study.
When I do this i get the following error:
Undefined value found.
- Detail: NaN or Inf found when solving linear system using SOR.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
