      I'd like to do a reflection-related things in space,like the picture, but lumopt the 'modematch' have choose the mode_number

      Unfortunately the lumopt based adjoint framework we support requires that you use mode power as the figure of merit. That is because you need to define an adjoint source based on the figure of merit. Using a mode monitor, and mode source allows this to be calculated pretty easily due the symmetry. You may need to use a different optimization approach, with transmission monitor. This would not be gradient based, but you could certainly improve upon your design.
      Best Regards
