IV Curve units (pn diode example)

      Hi,


      What is the unit of the y-axis in this IV curve? https://support.lumerical.com/hc/en-us/articles/360044943374-My-First-Simulation-Analyzing-Results-Demo

      And how is this current related to the norm length in the Solver?

      Thanks in advance

      Hi The unit for reported current in CHARGE is Ampere (A). This is the case for both 3D and 2D simulations. In 2D, CHARGE uses the norm length value to calculate current for the equivalent 3D structure.
      Best regards
