comment Meniscus attached to an inclined plate
No, you've covered all the aspects of my question :) BTW I think it'll be better if you add the explanation for the 2nd (Oh, now it's the 3rd) figure to the body of your answer.

comment Meniscus attached to an inclined plate
Is the lines in the 2nd figure plotted based on some equations or it's just a qualitative description for the ideal contact angle hysteresis?

comment Meniscus attached to an inclined plate
@DanielSank Yeah, I know, the meniscus in the above figure isn't plotted in a casual way, it's the numeric solution of Young-Laplace equation. (Well, should I add the corresponding Mathematica code?) Actually the core part of my question is just will the contact angle $α$ remain unchanged? If the answer is yes, then the shape of the meniscus can be easily calculated, but I'm not sure if Young's relation holds in this case.

comment Is my simulation result for unpolarized light correct?
@ChrisMueller Sorry, I didn't notice your comment (there're so many comments that day). I've moved part of the update into the answer and modified some of the description in the question to make it more readable. As for the suggestion of combining the figure in to a grid, I have to say it's hard for me now because I've deleted almost all of the raw data (they're too large! )

@Ruslan It took me several days to get a better simulation result of z-polarized case. Without all your help it'll be harder for me to find the answer so I turned my answer to a community wiki. Thanks for all!

@Ruslan If my understanding above is right, I'll wait for a while and answer the question myself if no one is interested in this chance to get some reputation :)

@Ruslan Yeah, in the last simulation the z-polarized one is indeed not negligible. (the passing rate is about 11% and that for y-polarized light is about 17%. ) So generally speaking, if I understand correctly, what I should do to simulate the unpolarized light is to take an average of the intensity of all the orthogonal polarized light other than just 2 of them, the plane source is just a special case because its z-polarized component is quite weak, right?

@Ruslan The grid is indeed a little scarce…… OK, now there remains the last question, see my update of the question for details.
