"VirtualLab is the only program I have seen that incorporates ray tracing, RCWA, and other modeling methods. VirtualLab also picks the modeling method that provides the best result with the least computation.”

"VirtualLab is a professional tool that in my view is one of the very best in software for solving a complex light phenomena. It shows innovative and effective solution for unexpected experimental results I got during my academic study. No need for a complex programming language.

The team at LightTrans is very helpful, friendly and kind. I am convening our institute to cooperate with VirtualLab."

“VirtualLab is a very promising software that is helping in solving some peculiar diffraction issues that have been causing headaches to the community.

The support team is very helpful and works side-by-side with the customer in order to adapt the software and its modules to the needs.

The training course was brilliantly structured, with a 2-days practical general introduction plus a whole day dedicated to our precise needs.”

“VirtualLab is a great tool with special features, as for instance the rigorous treatment of diffraction effects, that nicely complement the analyses usually performed with standard optical design software.

The high degree of customisation and the technical support provided by LightTrans are opening the possibility to perform analyses of complex optical systems that were considered unfeasible before.

The course of VirtualLab was very well structured and tailored to our specific needs.”

“JENOPTIK is using VirtualLab for the design of microoptical components as well as the simulation and rigorous analysis of microoptical systems.

On the one hand, with its user friendly interface, VirtualLab supports the designer with taking away much of the complexity involved with microoptical design and wave theoretical analysis, making the design process much more efficient.

On the other hand, VirtualLab still provides full control and flexibility with the possibility to write own snippets and modules for special design tasks.

We cooperate closely with the experts of LightTrans in solving complex optical design tasks and appreciate the short response time and competent support of LightTrans.”

“VirtualLab is one of the most exciting ways to discover the physical behavior of light. This “all in one” software includes coating analyses, microstructure design, illumination and imaging optics but also rigorous grating analysis and resonator physics.

The smart implementation of complex algorithms like the Iterative Fourier Transform Algorithm is fast and intuitive leading to high quality manufacturing results.

Especially, the programming interface of VirtualLab is incomparable to other optical design software and provides a nearly unlimited implementation capability of customized light sources, optical components and mathematical methods.”

“Novel light fields and beam profiles such as top-hat, multispot generation as well as LG-/Airy-/Bessel beams are becoming increasingly important. They are also gaining greater acceptance in applications such as high-throughput laser-material-processing, high-resolution / lightsheet microscopy and even quantum optics.

LCOS Spatial Light Modulators allow high quality, fully flexible and dynamic creation of these lightmodes. Virtual Lab helps our customers to easily design and calculate the according phase patterns with appropriate CGH (computer generated hologram) algorithms or diffractive optical element (DOE) approach and optimize them according to their experimental set-up. Having this powerful software makes it easy to start using light as a new and powerful tool and concentrate on the application itself.”

“Your software “Virtual Lab” is just unique and amazing in the way that it makes abstraction of mathematic or physics complexity behind. The interface and using experience is very simple and intuitive. Therefore it becomes, more straightforward to focus on the engineering tasks and physics interpretations than the underlying mathematics or modeling”. I have been myself working on similar concept during my thesis, but implemented on Matlab at that time (~10 years ago), so having this tool now is like having a dream which became reality.”

"Some years ago, I had an idea for a software platform that would enable me to do my optical designs and translate them into photomasks. I envisioned files representing any complex field that could be displayed like a bitmap. And the user could simply press a button, and the software program would calculate the Fourier transform, or perhaps normalize the values, or whatever one needed doing. When I saw VirtualLab for the first time, I realized that this was the software platform that I was thinking of, and it already exists! You have saved me a lot of time and hard work, and done a far better job of it than I could have ever hoped."
