|1||Click on “3D_Ref_Idx-Re(y)” tab on the bottom of the layout frame or select “Refractive Index” in the View menu. View of the refractive index cross-cut slice appears.|
|2||In the Orientation region which is in the left-bottom area of the window, change the slice orientation and move the slice position to observe the index distribution (refer to Figure 5, and Figure 6)
• Select Height Plot shortcut toolbar to observe the refractive index in height plot format.
• Right click on OptiFDTD graph to display the available graph tools/menus.
