      What should be the distance between PML and monitor?

      There is no minimum distance requirement here. At normal incidence reflections from the PML will be very small, and will not depend on the distance to the monitor. The only time you need to be careful is if you have cavity that will trap light, you should make sure that the PML is far enough away that it will not interact with evanescent fields of this region. Usually lambda/2 is sufficient.
