I am attempting to simulate an electromagnetic (EM) field, and I aim to conduct the simulation in the xz-plane because my field is oriented along the z-axis. I am uncertain about how to achieve this since it appears that the simulation is typically performed in the xy-plane. Is there a method or workaround that would allow me to conduct the simulation in the xz-plane?
should the monitor be in xz plan ?

Unfortunately, if you are doing a 2D FDTD simulation, you only have the option of having the simulation region in the x-y plane. You can have monitors in xy or xz planes, but the simulation region has to be in x-y plane.
If in fact you are doing 2D FDTD you will have to rotate the entire geometry by 90 deg or -90 deg along the x-axis using the Rotations Tab of the objects. Based on your structure, you might have to shift the objects around to have the exact same geometry in the x-y plane as it was in the x-z plane. But again, if you have a 3D FDTD region you will be able to have monitors in x-y (2D Z-normal), y-z (2D X- normal), and z-x (2D Y-normal) planes.
Maybe I can provide more specific information if you share a screenshot of your model and the simulation region.
