More information regarding the Point Source can be found in the Technical
Setting up a Point Source
|1||Click Select Point Source from the toolbar.|
|2||Place the Input Plane in the layout at the desired position.|
A red circle indicates the location of the point source (see Figure 83).

|3||To set up the input wave properties, double-click the Point Source in the layout.|
The Point Source Properties dialog box appears.

|4||In the Point Source Properties dialog box, set up the position information:|
|5||Specify the Time Domain Waveform and enter a value in Wavelength.|
Note: If you want to use Gaussian Modulated Continuous Wave, select Gaussian Modulated Continuous Wave in the Time Domain Waveform Selection dialog box.
|6||Enter the Amplitude value in the Amplitude box (bottom right).|
|7||In the 3D Field Component area, select an electrical component to hold the point source.|
Note: For 2D TE simulation, the point source is functional to major component Ey. For 2D TM simulation, point source is functional to major component Hy.
Note: You can edit any point source using the Point Source Properties dialog box by making a selection from the drop-down list accessible with Select a point source. Also, multiple point sources can be placed in the same position.
