Envelope (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Svetoslav Bajlekov
This function begins by deducing the wavelength of the signal's primary Fourier component
This function begins by deducing the wavelength of the signal's primary Fourier component. It then smooths the signal using a moving-window average -- the window is roughly top hat, of size equal to the primary wavelength. For 2-D data it will perform this function on each column of data, using the primary wavelength of the central column throughout.
The only input is the oscillating field. This method works remarkably well in obtaining the laser field envelope from the particle-in-cell simulations I have tested it on (see screenshot).
A possible extension would be to adapt it for a signal with a time-dependent frequency, by implementing a window of position-dependent size.
