FDTD:cannot run analysis of solar_generation

    • Minhaz Mahmood


      I am new to Lumerical so point me in the right direction please. I have the log here:

      start running analysis script of ::model::solar_generation ... ... 

      Error: prompt line 52: in getdata, the d-card named field was not found.
        Try the command '?getdata;' to see which d-cards are available.

      Hi Minhaz,

      I believe you are using getdata to obtain the data from "field" in your code. But when you look at the list of available d-cards, there is no object called “field”, which is causing the error. Is “field” a monitor in the simulation?

      If you are runing the solar cell simulation from our APP Gallery (Planar Silicon Solar Cell), make sure that you have the monitor called "field" within the "solar_generation" analysis group as shown below (Also make sure that the field monitor has data after the simulation is run, you should see data in the results view when you click on the "field" monitor) as shown below:
