3D kerr non linearity simulation

Hi all,
I am trying to see the effect on kerr nonlinear waveguides with different power levels. Firstly I could not find a way to observe the change in refractive index of the waveguide when I change the power. Is there a way to do it?

Secondly, is it possible to do 3D simulation with kerr nonlinear waveguide?

I could run 2D but 3d simulation gave me an error.

Thank you for your help and time

Cheers,
Anish

      Hi,

      Unfortunately only the 2D simulator can support nonlinear materials at the moment.
      It will not be possible to see the refractive index change as it is calculated on the fly during simulation.

      Best regards
