The mode never converge when simulate SiN taper

      Hello everyone,

      I'm using EME solver to simulate a simple taper with SiN. I choose Si3N4 - Phillip as my material. However, I never see my mode converge like Si in the Lumerical example after several modes. I am wondering why the mode doesn't converge. What should I set to get proper simulation?

      Here are several screenshots about my settings, and my simulation results.

      Sometimes it can be very challenge for mode convergence, as it may indicate that some parts of Taper may need more number of modes. Please check those two articles:

      It converges after I set the subcell method to CVCS.

      Thank you very much.
