Hi Meep Discuss,
I'm simulating whispering gallery TE & TM modes on 3D cylindrical discs,
and am telling Meep to simulate them assuming rotational symmetry of the
structure & fields (up to the angular dependence *m*). I want to calculate
the mode volume for the resonant modes of my structure, where I define the
mode volume to be :
V = integral epsilon |E|^2 / max epsilon |E|^2
I'm attempting to use the integrate-field-function and
max-abs-field-function to make this calculation, although it is unclear how
meep is treating the complex parts of the field during the integration.
Also, what are the units of these outputs?
