【ring resonator】About my transmission more than 1

      Hello!

      I am trying to simulate the ring resonator at 2D simulation now, and image 1 is the size and g=0.2um.

      I followed the sample of another group, I chose the simulation time at 15000, auto shutoff min 1e-10, PML layer 40. 

      But the problem is that the result of transmission is already more than 1(final image).

      so if anybody can give me the answer, thank you very much!

      this is the simulation image

      From the 2nd screenshot, both the left waveguides are ended in the background material, which is not good. You should reduce the FDTD X min to include both waveguides, eg, extend the waveguides to outside of PML, like in the right side. Otherwise they will cause reflection.

      In addition, since you have used very small autoshutoff min, you should use much longer simulation time, say 100 times to the current setting, and let the autoshutoff min to terminate the simulation.

      Not running long enough or too large the autoshutoff min is the main cause of such issue. Please refer

        Thanks for your information!Professor Sun.

        Today I already change some conditions that you have suggested. Such as extending the waveguides outside of PML, auto shutoff min=1e-15

        simulation time = 30000

        ....

        But the result is still more than 1. I am confused about it. So could you please give me another suggestion? thank you very much!

      Obviously, the simulation time is not long enough! it terminated at 100%. You will need to set the simulation time to be 100 times more than your current setting, and let the autoshutoff min to terminate it. the Autoshutoff min 1e-15 is too small. I would suggest to use 1e-6, or 1e-7. Please try.
