To run the simulation, perform the following procedure.
|1||From the Simulation menu, select Calculate 2D Isotropic Simulation.|
The Simulation Parameters dialog box appears (see Figure 19).
Figure 19: Simulation Parameters dialog box
|2||To start the simulation, click Run.|
The OptiBPM_Simulator appears and the simulation starts.
Note: The simulation in this lesson is short, therefore it will finish quickly.
At the end of the simulation, a prompt box appears (see Figure 20).
Figure 20: Prompt box
|3||To open the OptiBPM_Analyzer, click Yes.|
Note: While the simulation is running, to select the type of view for the simulation, at the bottom of the simulation window, click one of the following tabs:
• Optical Field (2D or 3D)
• Refractive Index (2D or 3D)
Note: To display the 2D view, click the Image Map button . To return to the 3D views, click the Height Plot button
• Cut View
When the simulation is finished, you are asked whether you want to launch the OptiBPM_Analyzer. Click Yes to open the analyzer.
Note: You do not need to close the simulator in order to open the analyzer.
To leave the OptiBPM_Simulator open, click No when the dialog box appears asking whether to exit (see Figure 21).
