Fast and Efficient Plane Wave Scattering Analysis of 2D Axisymmetric Models

Application ID: 106511

Electromagnetic scattering simulation for an object with continuous rotational symmetry can be performed in 2D axisymmetry instead of 3D to drastically reduce computational time and resources. This model shows how to simulate arbitrary plane wave incidence in 2D axisymmetric models by making use of the plane wave expansion in cylindrical coordinates. A more detailed description of this model can be found in our blog post "Electromagnetic Scattering in 2D Axisymmetric Models".

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
