VirtualLab Fusion - Physical Optics Software

The optical design software VirtualLab Fusion is designed to take you through your simulations in a step-by-step process. Start with ray tracing to investigate the basic performance of your optical system. Next, switch to geometric field tracing and quickly obtain additional information about your field values including intensity, phase, polarization, coherence, and inter­ference. Finally, combine geometric with diffractive field tracing techniques to include more wave optical effects in your simulation. You can learn more about fast physical optics modeling from these two articles (1,2).

VirtualLab Fusion Software Packages

Laser Systems Design

VirtualLab Fusion enables the optical design and simulation of laser systems for single- as well as multimode, continuous wave (cw) and pulsed laser sources. Laser systems can be designed including lenses, mirrors, diffractive optical elements, gratings and holograms. VirtualLab provides fast and accurate field and ray tracing engines in one software. [product description]

Diffractive Optics Design

VirtualLab Fusion enables the design and simulation of diffractive optical elements, micro optical elements, gratings, freeform elements and holograms for shaping, splitting, diffusing and homogenization of both, laser and LED light. Fast physical optics simulation and optimization algorithms enable the design of these elements and take into account diffraction, interference, polarization and degree of coherence. [product description]

Illumination Systems Design

VirtualLab Fusion enables the design and the simulation of illumination systems for shaping, splitting, diffusing and homogenization of both, laser and LED light. The emphasis of the software package is on the usage of lens arrays, diffractive optical elements and cells arrays consisting of gratings, mirrors and prisms. Fast physical optics simulation and optimization algorithms enable the design of these optical elements. [more]

Laser Resonators Design

VirtualLab Fusion enables the calculation of transversal eigenmodes of complex laser resonators. The influence of plane and aspherical resonator end mirrors as well as plenty of intra-cavity components like sharp apertures, lenses, diffractive optical elements and freeform surfaces on the transversal resonator mode can be investigated. This enables the simulation of stable, unstable and ring resonator geometries and beam delivery systems for optical pumping. [product description]
