total power when using stackdipole command

    • Neelesh Kumar Vij

      I was playing around with the Stack solver, particularly the stackdipole command. As mentioned in the documentation, we can choose to measure the emitted radiance direction to be either upwards or downwards by passing the +1 or -1, respectively.

      Since the spectrum for the dipole is passed to be 1 for a frequency, it should be logical to assume that the total power radiated by the dipole calculated upward and downward should sum up to 1 independent of the frequency. The way to do it is also mentioned in the sample code in the documentation. However, the sum did not add up to one when I performed this check. 

      Am I missing something here? Is the dipole spectrum not the power of the dipole at the frequency? 

      Thank you for the help!
