Thermal Lens and Stress-Induced Birefringence

[June 21, 2018]

 

It is vital in design to be able to include in your simulation not only those properties or components that play an intentional, wanted role in the system, but also, and with particular care, those effects which have the potential to interfere with its intended purpose, in order to quantify and, if possible, avoid them.

Below we show two examples of VirtualLab’s potential in this area: all thanks to its fast and ...

It is vital in design to be able to include in your simulation not only those properties or components that play an intentional, wanted role in the system, but also, and with particular care, those effects which have the potential to interfere with its intended purpose, in order to quantify and, if possible, avoid them.

Below we show two examples of VirtualLab’s potential in this area: all thanks to its fast and accurate approach, and an interface that allows you both to import measured data (from, e.g., ANSYS) or to include the effects via readily available or customized mathematical models.

Gaussian Beam Focused by a Thermal Lens

The variation of the focal length due to thermal lens effect and the changes of focal spot diameter are demonstrated with respect to the input laser power.

Construction and Modelling of Graded-Index Media

[June 11, 2018]

 

Graded-index, or GRIN, media are employed in optics to construct, among other components, lenses and multimode fibers. In VirtualLab you can easily choose to include GRIN media as part of your optical system, as it includes a fast and accurate modeling technique accompanied by a user-friendly interface that makes setting up the GRIN component a really easy task.

Modelling of Uniaxial and Biaxial Crystals

[June 01, 2018]

 

The anisotropic properties of crystals find applications in optics for plenty of purposes, particularly when it comes to manipulating the polarization properties of light. VirtualLab gives you the possibility to rigorously include both uniaxial and biaxial crystals in your optical system without sacrificing simulation speed.
