Varying refractive index

Hi,

I would like to simulate an EM wave propagation from a transmitter along a varying refractive index profile . The refractive Index values vary along x and y according to an exponential fit. How can I achieve this? Should I use scripting to accomodate this changing refractie index? Please help.

      Krishna,

      OptiFDTD does not natively support gradient refractive indices at this time. There are potential workarounds. Are you able to provide more detail in regards to the structure you are trying to model?
