New options in Electric Field Representation
Electric field plot now respects settings of Thickness units. Before X-axis was always represented in Physical thickness units.
Evaluation of the standing wave electric fields inside a stack of films is effected with the Field command from the Analysis Menu. OptiLayer computes the electrical field intensity inside the current design and plots it in the graphical form shown below. The physical thickness profile of the layers in the design is represented by the design bar displayed just below the graph of electric field strength. The design bar shows the different layer materials in different colors and/or patterns, the number of layers N and the overall thickness Th of the coating design are also displayed.
\(|E|^2\) values are expressed in relative units when incident wave has \(|E|^2=100\%\). Since these values are quadratic, \(|E|^2\) can reach 400% in the incident medium for the case of high reflectors.
