tidy3d.Simulation.poynting

Simulation.poynting(monitor)

Compute the Poynting vector at every point recorded by a Monitor. Returns the instantaneous power flux per unit area at every time for a TimeMonitor, and the time-averaged power flux per unit area at every frequency for a FreqMonitor.

Returns

(Watt/micron2) The Poynting vector, i.e. the directed power flux per unit area, at every sampling point of the monitor. Same shape as the E and H fields stored in the monitor.

Return type

np.ndarray
