tidy3d.components.data.sim_data.AbstractYeeGridSimulationData#

class AbstractYeeGridSimulationData[source]#

Bases: AbstractSimulationData, ABC

Data from an AbstractYeeGridSimulation involving electromagnetic fields on a Yee grid.

Parameters:
  • attrs (dict = {}) – Dictionary storing arbitrary metadata for a Tidy3D object. This dictionary can be freely used by the user for storing data without affecting the operation of Tidy3D as it is not used internally. Note that, unlike regular Tidy3D fields, attrs are mutable. For example, the following is allowed for setting an attr obj.attrs['foo'] = bar. Also note that Tidy3D` will raise a TypeError if attrs contain objects that can not be serialized. One can check if attrs are serializable by calling obj.json().

  • simulation (AbstractSimulation) – Original AbstractSimulation associated with the data.

  • data (Tuple[AbstractMonitorData, ...]) – List of AbstractMonitorData instances associated with the monitors of the original AbstractSimulation.

  • log (Optional[str] = None) – A string containing the log information from the simulation run.

Notes

The SimulationData objects store a copy of the original Simulation:, so it can be recovered if the SimulationData is loaded in a new session and the Simulation is no longer in memory.

More importantly, the SimulationData contains a reference to the data for each of the monitors within the original Simulation. This data can be accessed directly using the name given to the monitors initially.

static apply_phase(data, phase=0.0)[source]#

Apply a phase to xarray data.

plot_field_monitor_data(field_monitor_data, field_name, val='real', scale='lin', eps_alpha=0.2, phase=0.0, robust=True, vmin=None, vmax=None, ax=None, **sel_kwargs)[source]#

Plot the field data for a monitor with simulation plot overlaid.

Parameters:
  • field_monitor_data (AbstractFieldData) – Field monitor data to plot.

  • field_name (str) – Name of field component to plot (eg. ‘Ex’). Also accepts 'E' and 'H' to plot the vector magnitudes of the electric and magnetic fields, and 'S' for the Poynting vector.

  • val (Literal['real', 'imag', 'abs', 'abs^2', 'phase'] = 'real') – Which part of the field to plot.

  • scale (Literal['lin', 'dB']) – Plot in linear or logarithmic (dB) scale.

  • eps_alpha (float = 0.2) – Opacity of the structure permittivity. Must be between 0 and 1 (inclusive).

  • phase (float = 0.0) – Optional phase (radians) to apply to the fields. Only has an effect on frequency-domain fields.

  • robust (bool = True) – If True and vmin or vmax are absent, uses the 2nd and 98th percentiles of the data to compute the color limits. This helps in visualizing the field patterns especially in the presence of a source.

  • vmin (float = None) – The lower bound of data range that the colormap covers. If None, they are inferred from the data and other keyword arguments.

  • vmax (float = None) – The upper bound of data range that the colormap covers. If None, they are inferred from the data and other keyword arguments.

  • ax (matplotlib.axes._subplots.Axes = None) – matplotlib axes to plot on, if not specified, one is created.

  • sel_kwargs (keyword arguments used to perform .sel() selection in the monitor data.) – These kwargs can select over the spatial dimensions (x, y, z), frequency or time dimensions (f, t) or mode_index, if applicable. For the plotting to work appropriately, the resulting data after selection must contain only two coordinates with len > 1. Furthermore, these should be spatial coordinates (x, y, or z).

Returns:

The supplied or created matplotlib axes.

Return type:
