Hi, Thanks for your answer.

I got a bit confused.

As explained in the following article.

https://optics.ansys.com/hc/en-us/articles/4403945613843-Polar-plot-of-scattered-field-with-particle-on-substrate

There is a monitor in the XY plane and it calculates a 3D FF in the form of a semi-sphere using 

%

E2=farfield3d(mname,1,res,res);

%

Then by using  % E_ff_polar = farfieldspherical(E2,ux,uy,theta,phi);% and setting phi = 0, we can get the 2D FF in the XZ plane. Right?

So, from your answer, I got that this 2D FF in the XZ plane is not the xz cut of FF semi-sphere calculated by farfield3d(). Is that true?
