There are 2 steps using script to get the phase:
1: get the field components. As you know, the phase is associated with Ex,Ey, Ez (or H components). So you can use
similarly you can get x,y,z and f.
2: get the phase. for example for Ex, you can write
which will be a function of xyz and f.

In addition:
1: you can use Ex=getdata("monitor","EX") if you know you want Ex
2: you can use pinch to remove singular dimension: 

Please note that, a plannar frequency-domain monitor gives E/H/P as a function of x,y,z and wavelength/frequency. So in general the phase extracted from a monitor will have 4 dimensions, although one of the xyz will be singleton.

You can specify a particular dimension. Say you have a xy plane monitor. The phase will be


Using pinch to remove z singleton; phase=pinch(phase).

If you want to image phase or a specific wavelength, you can specify the frequency point, say fn (1<=fn<=nf), then

Image(x,y, pinch(phase(:,:fn)), “x”,”y”,”phase”);
