How to set chi3 in the form of third-order tensor in the nonlinear simulation?May 20, 2022 at 6:57 pmGuilin SunAnsys EmployeeCurrently the full tensor is not officially supported. But the diagonalized tensor should work :
Please try this if you have diagonal tensor Chi3.
If you want off-diagonal tensor, you will need to develop your own plugin dll, and it is little supported from our side: Flexible Material Plugin Framework
May 21, 2022 at 10:10 amyli9003SubscriberThank you for your response. Third-order nonlinear susceptibility, as far as I know, are third-order tensors with 27 tensor elements. But why does FDTD default to a second-order tensor? For instance, to which tensor element does ¤çxx, ¤çyy and ¤çzz particularly refer?
Furthermore, the FDTD website's tutorial discusses utilizing the attribute function to set the refractive index tensor with non-diagonal elements. Is this function useful for determining the ¤ç3 tensor?
May 24, 2022 at 3:00 pmGuilin SunAnsys EmployeeYou are right that the general 3rd order tensor has 27 elements. Lumerical's plugin material model can model 3by3 so it is simplified to xx,yy,and zz, meaning only ExEx,EyEy and EzEz terms are included.
I do not know which tutorial you are referring. For anisotropy material, yes you can use Matrix Transformation attribute to set such materials. Basically it diagonizes the full matrix into diagonal matrix and transformation matrix. However, not all 3by3 matrix can be diagnozed, in particular for broadband. This attribute is only used for anisotropy materials, not for non-linear materials.
May 27, 2022 at 9:40 amWenheJiaSubscriberHello In the third-order nonlinear process, I believe three electric field components must be considered. If only ExEx, EyEy, and EzEz terms are included, for example, SHG rather than THG or FWM can be obtained. Furthermore, I'm confused as to why ¤ç2 and ¤ç3 are in the same form in FDTD.
May 27, 2022 at 3:29 pmGuilin SunAnsys EmployeeYes you are right. However the current plugin material model only support diagonal case.
I am not sure what do you mean "¤ç2 and ¤ç3 are in the same form in FDTD". They have different units and act differently with the fields. If you still have questions regarding this, please write a new post.
