Hi Thomas, if you look at page 1917 of the component library document, you will find the formula of the 2×1 power combiner: it is a sum of electric fields (and not power levels). This means that the output depends on the relative phase between signals..for example if you change the “Initial Phase” parameters on first laser, the power meter measurement changes when the two wavelengths are equal!
