# Electromagnetic Incident Wave#

Electromagnetic Incident Wave = {model_name} {float} []

## Description / Usage#

This is to specify the incident wave for boundary conditions and post processing. This should probably be the same for all materials.

PLANE_Z_WAVE
• <float1> magnitude $$E_0$$ Plane Z wave in the x direction: $$(E_inc)_z = E_0 exp(i\omega x)$$

## Examples#

Following are sample cards:

Electromagnetic Incident Wave = PLANE_Z_WAVE 1.

## Technical Discussion#

This is used to set an incident wave for time-harmonic Maxwell problems, currently done through the absorbing boundary condition, and used in post processing the scattered and incident wave.
